Festival Ciné Junior : Édition 2012


Cine Junior Film Festival // 22nd // 1 to 14 february 2012

Cinema Public is an association that organizes every year, for more than twenty years now, the International Festival of Young Audiences Cinema Ciné Junior which takes place in eighteen public cinemas of Val-de-Marne.

The purpose of this association is to promote a public utility, required in distribution and in film exploitation. The association was created in 1978 to federate public movie theaters around the notion of public utility. It militates for several years for a real cultural action and an independency of the programming, for a cinema of nearness, an innovator cinema. It supports a certain idea of the film exploitation, not submitted to the market’s rules. It suggests arousing and developing film activities which aim at making the cinema in movie theaters lively and widen the distribution.

Cinema Public also coordinates the “Collège au Cinema” device in Val-de-Marne. It sets up trainings to make sensitive the local actors in the cinema and in the image. It develops a real educational policy in the image - such as workshops or publications.

Cine Junior Film Festival leads different actions :

  • It has the ambition to allow children and teenagers of Val-de-Marne to discover French and foreign quality movies (unpublished works or more ancient works that we cannot see easily). It also tries to concretely help the distribution of movies which can participate to a real artistic awakening of the young audience.
  • Cine Junior takes care of the costs to translate movies in foreign languages.
  • It also leads an educational work through the edition of pedagogical files proposing tracks of reflection to the teachers and to the other participating adults. In this perspective, we organize meetings between the directors and the young audience following the projections in order to give the children the opportunity to ask the questions they may have.
  • In a will of concrete help to the distribution of the movies selected, several prices are awarded at the end of the festival.
