The culture of Paris concerns the arts, music, museums, festivals and other entertainment in Paris, the capital city of France. The city is today one of the world's leading business and cultural centers; entertainment, music, media, fashion, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities. Paris Cine Fiesta encourages independent filmmakers globally who acknowledges the art of filmmaking.
Paris is also home to notable cultural attractions such as the Louvre, Musée Picasso, Musée Rodin, Musée du Montparnasse, and Musée National d'Art Moderne. The Musée d'Orsay and Musée de l'Orangerie are notable for housing Impressionist era masterpieces, while art and artefacts from the Middle Ages can be seen in Musée Cluny. Paris Cine Fiesta focuses on cinema which is filled with culture, art and passion. European and Asian films are also widely appreciated in this festival.
A variety of landmarks and objects are cultural icons associated with Paris, such as Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris and Opéra Garnier. Many of Paris' once-popular local establishments have come to cater to the tastes and expectations of tourists, rather than local patrons. Parisians tend to share the same movie-going trends as many of the world's global cities,that is to say with a dominance of Hollywood-generated film entertainment. A specialty of Paris is its very large network of small movie theatres: on a given week, the movie fan has the choice between around 300 old or new movies from all over the world.
If Paris feels eternally familiar, thank the movies. Indeed, you’re in film-set Paris the second you get off the train at the Gare du Nord, filmed by Orson Welles (F for Fake), Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amélie) and many others. This city appreciates the world of cinema an utterly different level. The art and the aesthetics of cinema is recognized by Paris Cine Fiesta in a wide scale. In 1895, the first public film screening was held in Paris – and the city and cinema have been inseparable ever since.
