School and educational approach

In 3 years, CINÉCRÉATIS, a school of cinema in Nantes, Lyon and Montpellier, provides a training course leading to a career in the cinema and audiovisual industry.

During one and a half year, the training is multi-purpose, allowing the student to specify his / her choice regarding the professional career he / she wants to pursue (production, image or post-production), while acquiring a solid knowledge of the entire film production chain.

The educational team of our audiovisual school, made up of professionals with over 16 years of teaching experience, has slowly built up a training programme in which high-quality technical learning is enhanced, nourished and enriched by a solid general education.

The school life and the individualised monitoring of students require rigour, method and discipline, just like the collaborative and creative professions of the film and audiovisual industry.
This training, which leads to a Level 6 RNCP title (equivalent to Bac+3), and entitled “Audiovisual Director / Designer” (April 5th 2012 Decreen published in the Official Journal of April 14th 2012) is aimed at students with a High School Diploma, who are sensitive to the audiovisual world and wish to develop their artistic and technical skills.

It enables them to master the different stages of the design of an audiovisual project, from scriptwriting to video shooting and editing techniques, as well as sound and production issues.

Required profile & curriculum

CINÉCRÉATIS is a school of cinema which trains students in all areas of the audiovisual industry and enables them to discover and understand the entire chain of filmmaking.
Based on a collaborative spirit and teamwork, the training is intended to be a real gateway to the professional world. Once they have completed their training at CinéCréatis, students are able to work and join a team of technicians, but also to manage all the human aspects of filmmaking.

Our audiovisual school also requires a certain openness of mind and capacity of learning from its students, who will be asked to adopt a scientific, literary and technical approach during their training.


Its buildings on the Ile de Nantes, in the Confluence district of Lyon, and in the heart of Montpellier’s Cité Créative, enable CINÉCRÉATIS to meet all the needs of its students. In each of these cities, the audiovisual school is located in an environment conducive to learning and discovery.
