Flux is a short format content package which aims to reinvest the pre-screening time. It is made for small and medium cinemas of the Hauts-de-France region, allowing them to strengthen their identity and stand out in the regional exploitation landscape. Many tools are made available to programmers on an online platform.
Flux is offered by Rencontres Audiovisuelles and De la suite dans les images since Autumn 2014, on the initiative of the Hauts-de-France region and the CNC, and after a pilot experiment conducted by Rencontres Audiovisuelles and the Majestic/Métropole cinemas (Lille) in 2012-2013.
Rencontres Audiovisuelles are in charge of the short film catalogue, providing member cinemas with around 100 regional and international short films every year.
The organisation also organises yearly actions and programmes with associated cinemas:
. “Le court métrage revient en salle” at the Majestic/Metropole in Lille: screening of a short film before feature films every night and in every room.
. “Oh les courts métrages !” at Le Cyrano cinema in Crécy-en-Ponthieu: a yearly cycle of screenings and events (outdoor cinema, film concert, workshops etc.).
Educational actions (creative workshops etc.) are developed around screenings in certain cinemas.
Time: throughout the year
Place: Hauts-de-France region
