Outside the narrative world, cinema becomes art, experience, avant-garde and exploration of what the senses can not perceive in reality. Figurative or abstract, it offers a virtually infinite field of visual and sound possibilities: multiple superimpositions, amazing framing, rapid editing, surprising experiments on the very surface of the film, optical effects ...

Looking primarily at touching the eye and the senses, experimental cinema works more on the visual image than on the narration.

Discover the invisible, create or visit parallel universes, surprise, invent, deconstruct and propose new logic. Between classical cinema and cinema of the real, there is a third exciting way, sometimes difficult, always promising.

In this panorama of experimental short films produced in the world from the origins of cinema to the present day, you will meet Orson Welles, Ralph Steiner, Fernand Léger, Dziga Vertov or Stan Brackhage, and you will be astonished, reassembled, scandalized ...
