The internationally renowned film education project ‘Le Cinéma, cent ans de jeunesse’ (CCAJ) enables students from 6 to 18 years of age worldwide to participate in a unique educational experience that combines film viewing, film analysis and filmmaking practice. Each school year focuses on a different theme.

Originally conceived by Nathalie Bourgeois and Alain Bergala in 1995 – the 100th anniversary of film – and based at the Cinémathèque française in Paris, CCAJ has grown steadily. Today, the project lives through its large international network of cultural partners in 14 countries. These partners are involved in the implementation of the project in their countries or regions. It is worth visiting the official website of the CCAJ, which offers a wealth of interesting resources on film education in three languages.

The DFF will participate in the project for the fourth time in the school year 2022/2023. Eighteen 9th and 10th grade students from Frankfurt’s IGS Herder will work with filmmaker Adrian Oeser and teacher Christian Dirksen on the film question “Centered/Decentered”.

Sophie Charlotte Erichsen is the project coordinator at the DFF.

CCAJ 2021–22

In the school year 2021/2022, 19 students from grades 9 and 10 of the IGS Herder in Frankfurt took part in a practical day with the film director Adrian Oeser. The theme was “motifs in film” (“motifs au cinéma”). See the results and short movie on the international blog.

CCAJ 2020–21

In the school year 2020/2021, the project was carried out with filmmaker Cristina Diz at IGS Herder in Frankfurt with 17 9th and 10th grade students. The theme was ‘time in cinema’ (‘temps au cinéma’). See the results on the international blog.

CCAJ 2019–20

The DFF participated in the project for the first time in the 2019/2020 school year. Together with the filmmaker Melanie Gärtner, the 9th grade students of the Schillerschule in Frankfurt focused on the topic “sensations in the cinema” (“sensation au cinéma”). Since the fall of 2019, the students had been making short film clips with the filmmaker as a learning exercise for the shooting of a final film, which was to be produced in the spring of 2020. Unfortunately, the project could not be completed as scheduled due to Covid-19.
