For this 51st  edition, FEMA gives the place of honor to an Australian actress who, under the porcelain surface of a Hollywood stunner with the air of an ice queen — To Die For directed by Gus Van Sant, unforgettable in Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut and Jane Campion’s The Portrait of a Lady — never ceases to amaze with her choice of ambiguous, spellbinding characters, forever seeking emancipation.

Saturday, July 8, come spend the day with … Nicole Kidman

In 5 films introduced by critic Adrien Dénouette — including Alejandro Amenábar’s The Others, shown for the first time in its 4K restoration.

Ice cream offered by Ernest served at midnight!

Celebrating Warner Bros.’ first 100 years 
In collaboration with Warner Bros., StudioCanal, Park Circus, Universal, and Tamasa Distribution.


For the 2023 Students’ Ecology and Solidarity Week and the La Rochelle “Les étudiants à l’affiche” festival, come join us this evening at 6:30 pm at the CGR Dragon in La Rochelle for a preview of Rafiki Fariala’s documentary Nous, étudiants [We, Students], in the company of the director. Screening followed by discussion.
