CCAJ – Le Cinéma, cent ans de jeunesse


The film education project CCAJ enables students between the ages of 6 and 18 worldwide to participate in a unique film experience that combines the discovery of film with a careful approach to filming. Each school year the focus is on a different question of cinema – this year the focus is on “La sénsation” (sensation).

Originally conceived and realised in 1995 by the Cinémathèque française in Paris and the film scholar Alain Bergala, on the occasion of the film’s 100th anniversary, today it is carried out by an international network of cultural partners who are involved in the development of the project and its implementation in their countries or regions.

In the 2019/2020 school year, DFF will be taking part in this cinephile project for the first time. Together with filmmaker Melanie Gärtner, the students of the 9th grade of the Schillerschule, Gymnasium Frankfurt, dedicate themselves to the aesthetics of film in a creative and artistic way. The aim of the project is to shoot a short film which will be presented in June 2020 at the Cinémathèque française as well as at the cinema of the DFF.

CCAJ is supported by the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain in the project Kunstvoll.
