The fastest way to become the smartest cinephile on Earth! 

A hundred years of cinema in 10 lessons: Lectures, educational materials, drinks and finger food, meet the speaker, key films to see before you die, and a "Doctor of Cinema" diploma at the end. 

An ongoing joint project of the Cinémathèque and the University of Luxembourg, the Université Populaire du Cinéma aims to provide participants with essential guidelines to understanding global cinema through monthly lectures accompanied by film clips, educational materials and additional screenings of key films.

Each session is open to beginners and seasoned cinephiles alike to gain perspective on and a deeper understanding of cinematic culture.
