CinéFabrique is a prestigious école nationale supérieure film school located in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France offering a free, degree-granting, 3-year programme. Entrance requires the national exam.

To ensure diversity, we accept 35 students per year – half female, half male – into 5 tracks: screenwriting, production, photography, audio, and editing.

CinéFabrique offers an innovative, experimental programme in which students acquire technical, hands-on knowledge that will help them find a job after graduation. We are also the only school to offer sandwich courses for film careers.

The curriculum culminates in a diploma from CinéFabrique as well as a French diplôme d’état, specifically a licence professionnelle in Video and Audio Techniques granted as part of an agreement between CinéFabrique and Université Lumière Lyon 2.

CinéFabrique believes in collaboration and hands-on experience. Applied techniques are taught by leading national and international film industry professionals, while theory is taught by researchers from Lyon 2.

The school employs an open, non-discriminatory selection process to ensure a highly diverse student body.

    The president of CinéFabrique is Philippe Vayssettes.
    The honorary president is filmmaker Abderrahmane Sissako.
    The school director is filmmaker Claude Mouriéras.
