École Georges Méliès was founded in 1999 by its managing director Franck Petitta. Located in Orly (Grand Paris), it adjoins Georges Méliès Park, the place where the father of cinematic art and visual effects concluded his life.

The Courses

École Georges Méliès offers 3 courses in the Applied Arts, the Animated Image and the Video Game. They are courses which are distinct in their professional objective, but which work in synergy in the film world. The multiple interactions that occur between these programmes of study make École George Méliès a unique teaching space, encouraging open-mindedness and preparing the student for the real conditions of the work of an Image Designer.
