Summary/Abstract: The article is an attempt at critical analysis of selected film education programmes addressed at school students by independent and network cinemas. The first part of the article is devoted to a survey of key determinants for Polish film academies’ educational profiles, largely determined by the contents of the Core Curriculum. Subsequently, four case studies are conducted: the New Horizons of Film Education programme operating in the Network of Studio and Local Cinemas, Młodzieżowa Akademia Filmowa [Youth Film Academy] at Amok cinema in Gliwice, the Interdisciplinary Programme of Media Education KinoSzkoła [CinemaSchool] operating at independent cinemas and community culture centres in smaller towns and finally Akademia Filmowa Multikino [Multikino Film Academy]. In her conclusion, the author analyses these cases in the light of current European tendencies in film education, outlined in the document "A Framework for Film Education".
