While many other companies born the 19th Century represent memories from the past, Gaumont is nowadays more vibrant than ever!
The famous French Film company celebrates today 120 years of existence, inventions, and successes in the industrial, commercial and artistic fields.
This free exhibition takes place at Alliance française in the Société Générale Gallery and celebrates the French Film Festival 2016. It brings the public from all walks through a memorable journey to discover the History of Cinema with loans from the Gaumont Museum.
“120 YEARS OF CINEMA” is much more than an exhibition about a film company.
It is about a diverse range of disciplines! For the past 120 years, the cinematographic company has represented and gathered all the professions of this field, including production, screening and distribution. It is about people! Behind the Gaumont name, famous directors made movies into works of art such as Louis Feuillade, Jean Vigo, Federico Fellini, Ingmar Bergman, Andrzej Wajda, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Maurice Pialat, Jean-Luc Godard, Luc Besson, Mathieu Kassovitz, and Jean-Jacques Beineix.
We will welcome Ariane Toscan de Plantier, Communication & Heritage Director at Gaumont, during the opening of the exhibition, Friday 11 November at 6.30pm, prior to Les Cowboys screening, at the Société Générale Gallery.
