From Jane Campion’s Antipodes to the Europe of Gilles Grangier, Bulle Ogier, Édouard Baer, Marco Bellocchio, Paolo Sorrentino... to the United States of Sydney Pollack, Nan Goldin and Bette Gordon, as well as the Asia of Kinuyo Tanaka, and a host of others, the bookshop offers you a true panorama of world cinema through biographies, graphic novels and analyses.

For those who like reading films as much as watching them, a section includes works adapted for the big screen and shown at Lumière 2021. Janet Frame, Elena Ferrante, Georges Simenon, John Keats, Thomas Savage, Horace McCoy... all the great writers are present.

The bookshop includes a selection of cinema reviews to immerse yourself in the latest news of movie theatres and films: Positif, Jeune Cinéma, Revus & corrigés... You can also find a few back issues of Positif to delve into past thematic columns of the cinephile magazine, founded in Lyon.

Finally, for young film buffs and readers, the children's section offers graphic novels to recount the story of cinema, its manufacturing secrets, and its history, as well as activity books and short stories to learn about some of the major names in cinema.

The emphasis is on new releases and beautiful works, from classics to more esoteric publications. And like every year, new discoveries.
