La mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure a-t-elle été évaluée ?: 
Si oui, quelles sont les principales conclusions/recommandations ?: 

The cinematographic field is not a traditional sector thus generating a curiosity in the youngsters who have suggested a repeat on the different workshop training.

Cinematography is not common in Mauritius, therefore, this new programme has created an encouragement among our youth. Studying the film industry is allowing students gain practical experience and build their CVs, as well as having a great opportunity to sample a profession. The course not only consists of the traditional programme but also introduces new fields such as drone operation, make-up artist and special effect make-up artist, costume designer, set designer and so on. With this non-usual experience, with sophisticated technology and an ability to analyse their own work, they are able to graduate as a highly employable individual.
