Our series

Champ libre: free rein to our filmmakers

All our good ideas are based on the same principle: the experience of films is best shared. It is in this spirit that we present Champ Libre, a new series of screenings where films are selected by guests. In addition to the literary screenings, we’re continuing to give free rein to local filmmakers with Jean-Claude Biette’s Le Champignon des Carpathes, chosen by Olivier Godin.
