Ce Qui Nous Lie (“What Is Linking Us”) is over…

…but it is not a reason to hibernate !

First of all, we want to thank the authors, the publishers and all the stakeholders (without forgetting the generous volunteers !) who made of this exhibition a very successful event !

You were almost two thousands people to come to visit the exhibition « Ce Qui Nous Lie » and to be present at the events we organized around this one. Many of you told us that they enjoyed our work and we really want to thank you for this !

Now, here is the next meeting : from the 15 of November, at the Ateliers Zone Art, for the market of the local artisans, at 37 rue Battant, at Besançon.

Indeed, the association ChiFouMi will stand of Little Ephemary Bookstore with the selection of comics we love and defend by our actions : books from the independant publishing, the alternative publishing, the micro-publishing… We are impatient to suggest you our choices !

La Petite Librairie Ephémère ChiFouMi

Please to note too : many authors will come to show their work and their books.

The firt of these meetings will stand with Gilles Rochier, on the 22 of November at the Ateliers Zone Art. Please check our website to be informed of the next dates !
So… see ya !

On Thursday October 11th, The Cinéma de la Scène Nationale of Besançon invites ChiFouMi for a carte blanche on the occasion of Ce Qui Nous Lie, our winter collective exhibition.
Here is its brief presentation release, thanks to its team for giving us this great opportunity :

Movies and the comic art form have a common imagination and fascinating stories to share. The association ChiFouMi, now familiar to our movie theatre, works all year long to promote creative and progressive comic art form as the exhibition Ce qui Nous lie can testify (Gymnase-cultural area of the IUFM at Fort griffon in Besançon, from September 13th to October 17th).

On this occasion, ChiFouMi invites us to explore new graphic and narrative forms through a large selection of movies, cartoons, videos, video clips and visuals as well as sound experimentations which are as many possible pathways between both the drawing and the motion picture universes.

These various works which are far from movies theatres public view gain prominence thanks to the web as they often testify of inventiveness and freedom of tone that compete with their lack of economic support.

They are created by cartoonists, benefit from their contribution from a way or another or reveal some of their significant inspirations.

Some remarkable works that now belong to the history of the film industry will tag this program, such as: Les Oiseaux sont des cons from Chaval, Les Temps morts from Laloux and Topor or another short film from the way too rare Jan Svankmajer.
