L’École de la Cité – France

The École de la Cité was founded in 2012 by French director Luc Besson in collaboration with major production and distribution companies such as TF1, Canal + and Gaumont. The school offers training in directing and screenwriting and is aimed exclusively at young filmmakers aged 18 to 25 who have not yet graduated. In order to enable a permanent exchange between the film industry and the school, the training is held at the Cité du Cinéma studio complex in the north of Paris, which was also founded by Luc Besson.
