Created in 1936 in order to preserve, restore and share film heritage, the Cinémathèque Française has been established since 2005 in the building designed and built by Frank Gehry. Within its walls, the wealth of the film museum collection recounts the history of cinema since its beginnings. The exhibition offers an array of displays featuring a mix of collection objects behind glass, manipulations and video projections.

In 2020, the Cinémathèque plans to renovate its permanent exhibition and offer visitors a new tour focusing on the image and work of George Méliès.

The Cinémathèque asked Reciproque to conduct an audit and provide consultation and assistance to redesign the exhibition. The objective is to support the project manager with the redrafting of the tour description, technical expertise on the mediation device typologies, and the drafting of an audiovisual pre-program. The project will be a major investment for the establishment over the coming years.
