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.

Ivan Ladislav Galeta
Austria, 1972-1998
expérimental, avant-garde

Ladislav Ivan Galeta from Zagreb is the neo-Platonist among European experimental film directors. Galeta hides a true chamber of wonders behind the clear, mathematically abstract structure of his films and videos, meticulously compiled rhythmically frame for frame, each work likewise presenting an analysis of the film medium. Concealed therein, culled from deep in the medium’s prehistory, are hermetic parallel universes in whose number ranges and symbolic spaces, Galeta’s precisely constructed film compositions find a formalist anchor.
Film is but one of the media in which Ladislav Galeta displays his artistic work. Galeta was also a pioneer in Croatian media art, and in 1977 co-founded Croatia’s first center, the MM-Centar for Film/Video/Multimedia. Until today he works in a multitude of installative and conceptual aesthetic formats – from object art, literary texts, and musical composition through to performance and net art and the Gesamtkunstwerk of a garden.(Georg Schöllhammer)
