National Film, Photography & Sound Engineering School (French: École nationale supérieure Louis-Lumière) offers theoretical, practical as well as technical and artistic education and training for those wishing to go into the various branches of the audiovisual industry.

Run under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, it offers a state-funded course at postgraduate level leading to a nationally recognised diploma equivalent to an Master's degree.


The school was founded in 1926 as l'Ecole Nationale de la Cinématographie et la Photographie on the rue de Vaugirard, under the leadership of personalities like Louis Lumière and Léon Gaumont, pioneer schools of cinema and photography. In 2012, the school moved to the Cité du Cinéma by Luc Besson in Saint-Denis.
