Lumière Classics

Throughout the year, all over the world, archives, producers, rights holders, distributors, studios and film libraries work to preserve their catalogues and restore films that make up the history of cinema.

The Lumière Film Festival has designated a label to support these restored works, whether they are classics or lesser-known films. It presents a selection of the year's finest restorations, previously unscreened, in two specific sections: Lumière Classics and Treasures and Curiosities. The latter reminds us of the importance of immersing ourselves in cinematographic territories that are often unfamiliar and yet indispensable. Moreover, a certain number of restored films presented in the full programme benefit from this label.

All the films will premiere in new restored prints.
