The Ciné En Herbe Festival

March in Montluçon for the Festival of Short Films

"CINÉ EN HERBE" is a meeting of the general public with young senior year pupils to show the latest French short films (first films) and to see the latest video productions from pupils from all over France pursuing the Cinema-Audiovisual option in the French Baccalaureate.
The non-profit organisation "Ciné en Herbe» was set up in Montluçon in January 1987. It is the result of close collaboration between students taking the Cinema option, the Madame de Staël Lycée in Montluçon
and the Clermont-Ferrand-based association, Sauve-qui-peut-le-court-métrage.

The objectives of Ciné en Herbe have been defined as follows:

  • Promote the world of young cinematographic talent through meetings, debates and competition between young producers and pupils following the cinema option at the lycée.
  • Enable the talent and passion to be passed from generation to generation, down to the really young.
  • Provide a forum for analysis and debate to offer educational and constructive criticism concerning the cinema.
  • Encourage involvement from the widest possible range of people.
