Lycée notre Dame “Film for Students Day” aims to introduce students to the Nigerian Film industry called Nollywood. The project’s goal is to support classroom teaching on Africa by screening one selected Nollywood films on the 5th of June 2018, carefully selected in order to develop students’ cinema culture, and awareness.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the Director or producer of the film in order to enable students gain a more profound and thorough understanding of African cinema, precisely Nollywood. Simultaneously, the objective of “FILM FOR STUDENTS DAY” is to accomplish its educational mission by raising the consciousness of African development through cinema to students of Lycée Notre Dame, Chartres, France; to inspire and further students’ critical engagement and to broaden their horizons to a new cinema, which is neither Hollywood nor Bollywood.
