Created and launched by the Institut français, CinEd gathers about ten cooperating partners in Europe, and receives support from many sources, local relays and the European Union’s Creative Europe/MEDIA programme.


CinEd is made up of a consortium of 10 founding  cooperating partners from 9 European countries :

Associació A Bao A Qu (Spain), Asociace českých filmových klubů - AČFK (Czech Republic), Association Arte Urbana Collectif (Bulgaria), La Cinémathèque française (France), GET Cooperativa sociale (Italy), IhmeFilmi (Finland), Institut français (France), Os Filhos de Lumière - Associação Cultural (Portugal), Societatea Culturala NexT (Romania), Association Meno Avilys (Lithuania).

These partners engage financially to cooperate in a reflective and operational manner, outlining and creating shared tools and contents, promoting their national cinematography and developing educational activities on cinema in their countries.

Associated relays

Beyond founding partners’ countries, institutions or organizations join the program in order to extend the use of CinEd in their own country at their own expenses as follows: Translating the platform and its contents, Organizing national promotion of CinEd, Training teachers/mediators, Organizing screenings and educational activities with young audience...


CinEd receives financial support from several organizations in the partnering countries, as well as from other European countries. They consider cinema education to be a priority for young generations, while also supporting the film industry and cultural diversity. They play a vital role in developing the programme. 


In each partnering country, and in Europe more generally, many organizations, structures and networks actively contribute to promoting and spreading CinEd or helping the programme through in kind contributions.
