This list was compiled by French film critic and historian Alain Bergala, which he distributes to students upon their orientation at the Paris Film Academy, La Fémis. This version of his list was handed out in 2010.

The list is not a compilation of the best films nor the most important ones, but was designed merely as a starting point for prospective filmmakers and students to learn about the history of cinema. One film a week for the duration of their four-year program.
