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.

EXPÉRIENCE À LA POMME> La Famille Digitale
Aurore Sanguinetti
France, 2006
animation, documentary

There are the tapes made by Arthur and his cousins on the cassette recorder… There are the drawings… There are the Super8 films of vacations… There is the sun on the façade of the house in Corsica. There is also the recipe of the street and the smell of French toast; or rather, the recipe for French toast and the smell of the sea… Yet where was this idea of smells, the idea of memories?
Between animation and video, Super8 and photo montages, this film digs, interweaves, untangles and seeks to reassemble the scattered memories from that beloved era of “when I was little”.
