Ciné-club universitaire in posters

When the Ciné-club universitaire was founded in 1951, cinema was a popular pastime: bringing it to the University was no small feat.

Some seventy years later, let's revisit the history of the Ciné-club through the posters of its film cycles, which are also an opportunity to reflect on graphic production under institutional constraints.

Cerise Dumont holds a double Master's degree in Art History and Anthropology, and is also presenter of V.O., the campus cinema program. Julien Jespersen has been a graphic designer at Actitivés Culturelles since 2001.
