La Fémis is celebrating its 30th Anniversary

La FEMIS, a world-renowned cinema school, will be celebrating its 30th anniversary. For the occasion, the Institut français will be promoting a brand-new program abroad, honoring first short films either by renowned filmmakers or of young creation.
For the 30th anniversary of La Fémis, the Institut français, will promote, through its French Cultural Network around the world and its partners, a program of 15 end-of-study-program short films that highlight three successive generations of the School, by graduates in the years 1990, 2000 and 2010 who have moved on to a brilliant path.
This program is offered throughout the fall of 2016, particularly at the Short Film Festival held on December 10-18.
Since its inception in 1986, La Fémis has been training 60 students in 10 cinematographic trades each year, namely filmmakers, screenwriters, producers, cameramen, sound engineers, decorators, film editors, script readers, film distributors and movie theater owners.
Every year, a host of films by students, former students and department directors are selected and distinguished at festivals in France and around the world. Four César awards and an Oscar nomination in 2016 for Mustang by Denize Gamze Erguven, a SACD prize at the Directors’ Fortnight for Les Combattants by Thomas Cailley in 2014, Grand Prize at the Clermont-Ferrand Festival for Como todo el mundo by Franco Lolli in 2008… and a selection each year since the creation of Cinéfondation of the Cannes Film Festival for a short film directed within the scope of the La Femis curriculum.
