la Cinemateque Francaise

This year we have embarked on an exciting new project that has seen us link up with a number of schools in Lincolnshire and with the British Film Institute. We have been able to give 11 children from year 6 the opportunity to learn about the early pioneers of film through to the exciting new blockbusters of today and how they are made.

The la cinemateque francaise allows children from all over the world to engage in film as part of their learning.  Each year they choose a theme that the children need to follow. This years theme is places and stories. Eventually, they will work towards creating their own 8 minute piece of cinematic history. Along the way the children will improve their skills with a series of exercises.

Below are a selection of films and events that we participated in last year.


We had a great day at the BFI in London. We watched ourselves on the big screen, answered questions about the film and then walked through London to the British Museum. We are very proud of the children they were fantastic!


Watch the final film made by the children. This film will be shown at the BFI cinema on the Southbank, London and also at the Venue in Lincoln. The children have worked incredibly hard on making this. They are really proud of it. Enjoy!

Going Nowhere is a film that chronicles the adventure of one young girl who, on one ordinary day at school, slowly comes to realise that through one special object it is possible to travel to faraway lands, each filled with magic and wonder, all without leaving her chair.
