Cinémas hors circuits


Welcome to the Cinémas hors circuits site.

Dedicated to independent cinema, Cinémas hors circuits is a project to highlight the work of independent publishers/distributors, cultural activists without whom many films would have disappeared from memory. As active custodians of a significant part of the cinematic heritage, such publishers have to counter the blockbuster mentality of mainstream distribution and the concentration of distribution networks.

To enable both the general audience and professionals to discover the films such independent publishers promote, and to encourage debate around new challenges and opportunities in publishing, Cinémas hors circuits offers:

a portal for independent publishers
a fair: an event entitled Salon du DVD & des éditeurs indépendants de cinéma/The DVD & Independant Publisher's Fair which wich took place in Paris in 2008 and 2009, in Poitiers in 2010 & 2011.

Kelvin Kyung Kun Park
Korea, 2005
artist film

Kelvin Kyung Kun Park’s INVITATION TO A PEACEFUL CITY , poetically mediates on the various forms of cultural resistance and simple quotidian ways of making do, that a variety of displaced Korean villagers have made after being first displaced by the Japanese and then the American airforce. Park’s work sensitively speaks about the conflicts that has arisen between the locals who are now tied into the economy of the base and others who still live under its shadow.
Kelvin Kyung Kun Park recently screened work at Recontres Internationales, Paris, the Seoul Independent Film Festival, Seoul, the LA Freewaves, Media Arts festival , Los Angeles and at the B&W Gallery, California Institute of the Arts, California. He was born in the South Korea and lives and works in Seoul.
