THE PCMMO: PRESENTATION

MORE THAN 800 FILMS PROGRAMMED SINCE ITS CREATION!

Born in 2006 in Saint-Denis (France, 93), the PCMMO-Panorama des cinémas du Maghreb et du Moyen Orient is an international movie festival rooted in the Parisian region’s cultural landscape.

The festival takes place during the spring, out of the spring holidays and before the Cannes festival: its dates vary between March and May depending on the year. It lasts about three weeks, with a festive launch at the movie theater l’Écran in Saint Denis, the festival’s cradle and center, then screenings in various places in Paris and Seine-Saint-Denis.

Several cultural events are held during the festival: preview showings, special screenings with youth or women from local neighborhoods, literary encounters, professional panels, concerts, cinema philosophy workshops… The diversity of its places is what makes the PCMMO special. More than movie theaters: neighborhoods screenings, in schools, colleges, public libraries, etc.

Numerous events are also held throughout the whole year with many cultural partners: preview showings in collaboration with other festivals, “PCMMO loves” nights, etc. The Panorama also organizes Cinema Club screenings for highschoolers, women’s groups or local associations.

The PCMMO is organized by the association Indigènes Films, partnered with the movie theater l’Ecran in Saint-Denis, with the support of the city of Saint Denis, the General Council of Seine-Saint-Denis, the Île-de-France region, the DRAC Île-de-France and local private partners.

 

EVOLUTION

FROM MOROCCO TO THE MIDDLE EAST

At its creation in 2006, the festival’s goal is to promote Morocco’s cinema. Two years later, in 2008, the Panorama des cinémas du Maroc becomes the Panorama des cinémas du Maghreb, willing to open its borders, hence allowing movies from all parts of Northern Africa to make it to the festival’s programming. Always wanting to share more movies from the Arabic world, the staff decides to integrate movies from the Middle East in 2012, for the 7th edition.

This opening is an invitation to explore the richness of a cinematography that sometimes fails to make itself seen in French movie theaters. With this larger range, the staff works to design a diversified and qualitative selection.

The Middle East defines a cultural area. Generally, the Arabic, Turkish and Persian civilizations are included. North African countries are related to the Middle East by their strong cultural and historical ties.
