SHORT FILM AND FILM LITERACY

 

Since its creation, L’Agence du court métrage has always defended and seen short films as complete works, as true cinema, not something in progress.

We guide anybody eager to run educational or cultural activities built around cinema and for all audiences (schools, after school programs, audiences within the medical social field, audiences with limited access etc.)

Short films are a wonderful way to explore cinema especially in an educational setup.
It allows:

  • To approach the richness of cinema through its forms, genres and writings
  • To watch several full movies within one educational session
  • To elaborate a strong comparison, around a theme or a cinematographic idea
  • To create a direct relationship with a film as shorts aren’t usually seen as art pieces or masterpieces unlike features, which sometimes alters the encounter with a film.
