Lumière festival 2020

From Saturday 10 to Sunday 18 October 2020

The 11th edition of the Lumière festival will be held from Saturday 10 to Sunday 18 October in Lyon. Last year, 185,000 festivalgoers attended 424 screenings in 60 venues in the Lyon Metropolis.

The spirit of the festival:

Created in 2009 by the Institut Lumière, the festival has become one of the largest international festivals of classic cinema. Once a year in Lyon, the birthplace of the Cinematograph, the cinema world celebrates the vitality and memory of film, taking a contemporary journey through works of the past (restored films, retrospectives, tributes...). Thanks to all the participating theaters, the festival shines across Lyon and its surrounding area, reaching a wide audience.

424 screenings, 190 films, in 60 municipalities of the metropolis of Lyon.

Screenings introduced by actors, filmmakers, historians, film critics, and by our "Lumière Ambassadors."

The Lumière Award is presented every year to a personality of the cinema for his or her entire body of work. In 2019, Francis Ford Coppola has received the Lumière Award and succeeds Jane Fonda, Wong Kar-wai, Catherine Deneuve, Martin Scorsese, Pedro Almodovar, Quentin Tarantino, Ken Loach, Gérard Depardieu, Milos Forman and Clint Eastwood.

Retrospectives dedicated to great filmmakers who have made or are still making cinema history, of all genres and all eras.

Invitations to actresses and actors, filmmakers, film music composers.

Restored prints on the big screen in the theater:  See films in the best conditions.

Huge film screenings at the Halle Tony Garnier, the Auditorium of Lyon and the Conference Center.

A discovery of silent cinema with cinema concerts.

Master classes and the opportunity of special encounters thanks to the festival guests. 

Exhibitions and the cinema and photography fair.

Places to get together: the Village festival in the Institut Lumière Park, the barge La Plateforme at night... and a mâchon at a restaurant in Lyon! 

A rendezvous for professionals: the International Classic Film Market.

A festival for all, inclusive of everyone: hospitalized children, inmates, those in reintegration programs, schoolchildren...

The Lumière festival is made possible thanks to the Metropolis of Lyon, the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Region and the CNC, and is supported by the City of Lyon and the Ministry of Culture and Communication.
