To celebrate, we started a residency at Mains d’Œuvres (Saint-Ouen, near Paris) in order to set up the Collectif Jeune Cinéma’s Temporary Cinematheque. More than a third of our catalog will be screened there, with one screening every Friday, and one full Saturday per month.
"Cinéma différent" for a pay-what-you-want fee
With the CJC’s Temporary Cinematheque, we want to set up a place where every week, at any cost, different and experimental films will be screened, and thus create a regular program, where the importance is given as much to the conviviality of the place as to the quality of the programming.
We want to make the Temporary Film Library a place where filmmakers, cinephiles, curious people, students and film professionals can meet. If everyone can leave a screening with the desire to make a film, to be interested in marginal forms of cinema, and thus contribute to alternative histories of cinema, we would be very happy.
The members of the CJC, all filmmakers, will welcome you to this space, which we hope will be as accessible as possible: that’s why the entrance fee is pay-what-you-want.
At the end of each session, there will be a discussion in the room or at the Mains d’Œuvres bar.
