      2018  Places

« Places ans stories »

In December 2017 the Cinémathèque welcomed students and teachers from 10 groups on the CCAJ project in the Île-de-France region for a special pre-release screening of Nobuhiro Suwa's The Lion Sleeps Tonight followed by a Q&A session with the director.
In June 2018 school children from across the world met at the Cinémathèque to share a moment of magic with Agnès Varda, godmother of the CCAJ project, investigating the places that inspire us to tell cinematic stories.

« Playing, in cinema »

"Why is playing so important in your films ?". This is one of the questions children and teenagers of the CCAJ workshops have asked to Noémie Lvovsky and Thomas Salvador, the two “godfather” filmmakers who were invited to the International meeting of CCAJ, in June 2017.
