Conceived by Luc Besson, la Cité du Cinéma is a brilliant tool box for professionals of the French and international cinema. A major facility, with no equivalent in terms of its scale in France.
The project brewed for ten years, and after two years of building works it was finally inaugurated in 2012.
Set in an old hydroelectric station 220m long, la Cité du cinéma concentrates in one location all the human, technical and logistical resources needed for the different stages of filmmaking: script writing, production, building sets, creating costumes, filming, post-production and screening !
Spectacular tool, facilities at the cutting edge of technology, this new Hollywood will allow for wide-scale productions and will also appeal to foreign productions.
Nine film sets, a projection room with 500 seats; business premises; overall spread across 62 000 m² : Gigantic !
