The village bookshop

Located in the heart of the festival Village, the bookshop will open its doors on Friday, October 9th and will welcome you daily from 10:30am to 9pm.

Between two screenings or during a stroll in the village, explore the themes of a makeshift-yet-authentic cinema bookstore, featuring nearly 500 titles this year!

In order to prolong the pleasure of your screenings, the Lumière 2020 lineup is obviously in the spotlight - from Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne to Michel Audiard or Big Classics in black & white - check out the many works on famous personalities this year, be they actors or directors.

From the Europe of the Dardenne brothers, Alice Rohrwacher, Sabine Azéma and Thomas Vinterberg to the United States of Oliver Stone and Joan Micklin Silver, without forgetting Asia and many others, the bookshop offers a real panorama of world cinema through biographies, albums and critical analysis.

For those who like reading about movies as much as watching them, a section brings together the works adapted on the big screen for Lumière 2020: books by big writers Georges Simenon, Albert Simonin, Vera Caspary, Akinari Ueda or Ron Kovic can all be found here.

Additionally, there is a selection of film magazines to immerse yourself in recent cinema and movie lovers’ news: Positif, Cahiers du cinéma, Jeune Cinéma, La Septième Obsession, Revus & corrigés... Or flip through back issues of Positif for a deep dive into the thematic files of the cinephile review born in Lyon.

Finally, for our mini film buffs and readers, the youth department offers graphic novels that recount the cinema, its secrets of production and its history. Plus, activity books, or short stories to discover some major figures of motion pictures.

The focus is on new works and coffee-table books, from classics to lesser-known editions. And like every year, count on discoveries and surprises!
