#11 European Classic Documentary Film Meetings 2021

Cinéma du réel is opening a window dedicated to heritage documentary film and those working in this field – a window for exhibition, reflection and debate. Documentary cinema, as much as fiction cinema, has great authors, chefs-d’œuvre, and a rich and precious history. It is also mobilising remarkable restoration initiatives and collection work that need support. This conference will include two sessions: presentation of 5 restored films and a round table.
