Light Cone's office reopens on July 1st! Reception hours during the summer will be from Monday to Friday, 11am to 5pm, by appointment only.

It will again be possible to watch films and consult the paper archive at our Documentation Center. For appointments, please contact us at documentation@lightcone.org.

You will also be able to pick up and return rented film prints in person. Please confirm the date and time of your visit in advance by writing to printtraffic@lightcone.org.

Please note that wearing a mask and disinfecting your hands will be mandatory during your visit.

The Light Cone team remains at your disposal by email and by phone during reception hours.


We really enjoyed sharing films with you during the lockdown and want to continue this activity with a new online program. This is conceived in the form of a dialogue within our collection, with the intention of exploring possible relationships of analogy, filiation or interaction between the films. Every 15 days, you will find a new Scratch Dialogues selection on our website and social media.

We are also launching Scratch Focus, a new online screening series that aims to encourage the exploration of the Light Cone catalogue, a constantly evolving collection that is now composed of about 5500 films. Every month, we invite you to discover on our website the practice of one of the filmmakers in the collection.

Nearly 1600 films from our distribution catalogue are available for streaming, if you just search for them! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see some of our suggestions.


Join us for the new season of Scratch Projection, our regular monthly screenings at the Luminor-Hôtel de Ville starting again in September. Our program for the fall:

Carte blanche to Jacques Perconte
in the presence of Jacques Perconte

Cinema for the Ear
in the presence of Jérôme Noetinger

Klonaris/Thomadaki - Double Labyrinthe
in the presence of Katerina Thomadaki

Atelier 105: Ralf's Colors
in the presence of Lukas Marxt

The exact screening dates and detailed programs will be announced very soon.

The special edition of Scratch Expanded #10 - a festive evening dedicated to contemporary forms of expanded cinema with performances, installations and open-air screenings - which was scheduled for June 20th, 2020, at Les Voûtes, has been postponed to June 19th, 2021. Although the celebration of the event's tenth anniversary will come a year late, it will be in the company of emblematic figures of Expanded Cinema, with film performances by the Cellule d'Intervention Metamkine (France), Bruce McClure (USA) and Guy Sherwin (England). Also on view will be an installation by the artist collective Flatform (Italy).

Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
