VdR at School: the VOD platform for schools

Target group: Primary school, Secondary levels I and II

In 2022, VdR at School is updated, while diversifying and expanding its offer. Open all year round, the VOD platform gives access to documentary films intended for schools. Every month, a new film with educational material is added to the platform. The platform remains free of charge and is now also offering an online Film Club for students.

A made-to-measure offering for schools

The Visions du Réel at School platform wishes to contribute to the initiation of students to cinema of the real, to the moving image and to the multiple realities of the contemporary world. The films are classified by subject, grade level and theme, accompanied by educational material and suggested activities to be carried out around the screening of the film. Thus, the platform proposes itself as a resource for teaching and image education in Switzerland.

The inter-school Film Club aims to organize regular online meetings between students and filmmakers or critics. Each month, two films will be offered free of charge to the members of the Film Club, who will have one month to watch them. After this period, a meeting will be held to discuss the films and share impressions, with people from different backgrounds and beyond the cantonal borders!
