Education At The Festival
Cinema has the potential to fascinate, inspire and educate students, opening their minds to the world around them. Exposing students to French cinema provides them with a powerful, accessible and enjoyable experience of a different culture many have little understanding of. Through exposure to French cinema, educational institutions are helping students on the path to becoming global citizens.
Using the Alliance Française French Film Festival as an opportunity for education has the following further benefits:
- After making a booking to the festival, organisers can provide teachers with detailed course outlines for selected films. They will provide a framework for how further learning can take place and combine with the NZQA school curriculum. Course outlines can be provided for the following films: Astérix et Obélix, Animation Express, Renoir, Journal de France, Haute Cuisine, and The Painting. Download course outlines by clicking here.
- Foreign film is a powerful catalyst to facilitate discussions, to teach international events, global finance, cross-cultural affairs and multi-disciplinary subjects.
- It encourages and inspires students to prepare themselves as members of a global marketplace, not just a New Zealand one.
- Foreign cinema can be used to expose students to conflict resolution techniques that are inclusive of cultural acceptance and understanding.
- By taking students to screenings within the Alliance Française French Film Festival, teachers are extending student’s conceptions of the learning environment, making a clear statement that learning does not just take place within the confines of the school.
