The programme has been in the field for the last 12 years (since 1998) under the responsibility of the Regional Board of Education of the Algarve (Ministry of Education) in the entire region. With its origins in a Masters thesis, it is a programme that works towards developing cinema literacy and has had up until now 60 of the 67 public schools of the area involved in it, along with its 25,000 students, 1,250 teachers and 1,200 viewing sessions.

The JCE Schools’ Network has major goals:
