The first festival of Chinese Cinema in France is underway, with Chinese films being shown in large cities across the country.

The twelve films in the festival haven't been seen in France before, making the festival the first opportunity for French filmmakers and film fans to explore Chinese cinema.

The Institute Lumiere is a cinema museum based in the house built by the two brothers who invented moving pictures -- Louis and Auguste Lumiere. It seems fitting then, that Chinsee cinema should be making its debut at the birthplace of film.
