Films, books, musics, and... cocktails


La Maison du doc
Since 1994, the Ardèche Images Resource Center has maintained a database on French-language European documentaries. The database, which can be accessed through the Internet at www.lussasdoc.com, can be used to obtain general information, information on a specific subject, to establish filmographies. The database is currently a repository for 15,000 films.
The aim of La Maison du doc is to be a living memory and repository for films. The Club du doc (Video Library Cooperative) plays a role in the achievement of this aim; it can be accessed, either on site or remotely, by film professionals who become members once one of their films becomes part of the collection. The Club is also open to other professionals working in film: researchers, critics, historians, film and television journalists, teachers, film students, and the local population. Members who have not deposited a film pay annual membership fees.
La Maison du doc also promotes the creation of alliances; it is a place where people can come to discover documentary films. Stays can be organized for interested writers, directors, producers, and broadcasters, all year long.

Open from 10.00 am to 8.30 pm

Hors Champ
French language daily of the États généraux, available free every morning, Hors Champ accompanies spectators through the films of the different screening selections. The paper is made up of short critical texts, chronicles, reports and informations on the event. Hors Champ offers a variety of paths for reflection and allows continuation of the questioning raised during seminars and debates. In particular, it invites the viewer to discover films which have been little or not at all seen, whose form and content enrich and renew our way of looking at the Real.
