Free online screenings
CinéSchool offers free online screenings of selected movies for ages 5 to 15, with educational resources and interactive discussions on the FlipGrid site.
Ten films will be shown on the virtual cinema stage of the French Embassy’s cultural services during the 2021-2022 school year with a screening rhythm per month from September to June. Pictures will be provided in French, with English subtitles if possible.
This first choice provides a panorama of the diversity of content offered to young audiences by creating a variety of themes and perspectives to be discussed with students. Each online session has a limited number of free tickets, allowing for up to twenty classes across the United States. To participate, fill out the registration form available on the website Facial Foundation.
One Saturday per month
The screening is free and available on the French Embassy’s Cultural Service site in the United States. Screening will take place one Saturday per month at the date and time specified for each film.
Parents need to create an account on the platform to book their free ticket. On the day of the screening, all you have to do is log in and watch the movie at the specified time, like a “real” cinema session.
Bilingual documents (standard email, print document, etc.) are available for your use at face-foundation.org to communicate with parents.
Discussions on FLIPGRID
The week after the screening, parents and students can engage in film-wide dialogue in the FlipGrid discussion created for the event. Students can discuss the film so they can practice their French! Occasionally, external speakers (film crews, film experts, etc.) will participate in discussions to answer students’ questions.
The plan is monthly
