European Cinema Education for Youth

CinEd is a European cooperation project co-funded by the Creative Europe / MEDIA programme of the European Union, "Support for film education".
Its objective is to help the greatest possible number of European youths aged 6 to 19 discover European cinema.
CinEd aims at providing privileged access to European cinema and its wealth of films, and to teach young people about its cultural and linguistic diversity, developing their critical analysis skills and learning cinematographic techniques and language.
Created by the Institut français in Paris in 2015 and launched, for five years (2015-2020), from October 2020 and for the two coming years will be coordinated by the Cinemateca Portuguesa - Museu do Cinema (Lisbon).
