The first workshop aims at discussing the current stage of research concerning the history of film schools during the 20th century and to elucidate which schools and institutions hold and grant access to written and audiovisual sources. It also addresses methodological questions such as how to research formation processes of professional networks, transnational circulations, or how to analyze student films adequately within the framework of the whole project.

L'objectif de ce premier atelier est de proposer un état de l’art concernant l’histoire des écoles de cinéma au XXe siècle; de dresser un état des lieux des sources écrites et audiovisuelles disponibles dans les écoles et dans les autres institutions impliquées; et de définir les outils méthodologiques privilégiés pour étudier la mise en place de réseaux professionnels, les circulations transnationales d’acteurs, et pour analyser les films d’étudiants.
