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 FĂ©mis. 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.
