WHY KINO IN CAEN
Because Caen is a city that still evolving in art. While in 1999 Montreal was building up its Kino, Caen created a "forum vidéo"
-free screen of monthly presentations of video creations. Even though the idea stayed regional, the idea was the same. It seems then logical to create, here, a new crew.
WHO'S BEHIND THE PROJECT ?
The project is carried by "les Films du Cartel"
, an association in the place since almost 6 years and different members have already participated in Kino all around Europe. The most frequented by the Caennais being the Off-Court Festival
of Trouville. In fact, those two cities situated in Calvados, are making it the second region after Montreal/Quebec to have two Kino Teams 50 kilometres apart.
