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.

RE:FRAME is a selection of seven films from a contemporary cinema, removed from Bollywood, that testifies to the richness of creativy in India. Oscillating between documentary, video art, experimental film, and animation, this compilation explores the means with which the texture of memory is incorporated within postcolonial Indian society's individual journeys as well as the national psyche; within private circles as well as public spaces. It allows for contrasting points of view regarding the country's situation and its unanswered question: when the past has yet to catch up with the present, is it a threat or an alternative to the present?
