For the Univerciné Allemand festival’s 25th anniversary, we implemented a new project to strengthen the Franco-German friendship: simultaneously with the retrospective, we created the “Ciné-Mobiles” jury. The goal was to bring together 6 young people, who had already graduated and taken part in an exchange with either France or Germany, in order to work as a group in German and French. The dual nationality of this jury allowed the members to have a new look on a selection of 3 films from the festival: “This Ain’t California”, “Cleo” and “303”. The members of the jury indeed benefited from a preparatory session for film analysis, in order to establish the common criteria used during the post-screening discussions. This project took place online from May 2nd to May 9th, and was supervised by two colleagues: Schirin Berndt (linguistic assistant at the CCFA) and Clémence Lohr (interning student for a European tutored project).
