Cinéma, Cent Ans De Jeunesse is a film education program for young people originally conceived and produced by Cinematheque Francaise to celebrate hundred years of cinema. It has been in operation since 1995 allowing groups of young people between the ages of 6 and 18 across the world to take part in a unique cinematic experience, combining the discovery of cinema with a rigorous approach to filmmaking focused around a different question of cinema chosen every year. Over the years, an international network of cultural partners has joined hands in developing the program and taking it to their countries. Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Italy, Japan, France, Spain, Lithuania, UK and India among many others, take part in this program. Every year, the program explores one aspect of cinema, like Colour, Space, Time, Movement etc.
