Festival start: 28 October 2021      Festival end: 30 October 2021

CineCapsule, organize a special event for all film addicts! The event takes place at L'espace Voltaire in the 11th arrondissement of Paris and offers a series of performances in collaboration with the artists and designers of the Espace Voltaire. The objective is to highlight video productions that follow an imposed theme. We will find three themes, different each quarter:

- Eternal Circle: "Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed". (Lavoisier)
- I Don't Wanna Be Me Anymore: From Shadow to Light
- Same Love: "Loving is half the battle of believing." (Hugo)

The film that will get the most votes from the public will be broadcasted online on our platform for 1 month and will also be shown during the event at the Espace Voltaire in front of many artists.
