Tales of Two Cinemas

Cyprus : Tales of Two Cinemas

The cinema theatres, Attikon, in Pafos and Kino Cosmos, in Plovdiv (Bulgaria), share common memories and stories from the past, as well as their future challenges. The European Capitals of Culture Pafos2017 and Plovdiv 2019 meet, with the two cinemas at the heart of this encounter, and share the tales of the cinema theatres, as well as, the cities themselves, while examining their prospects, their current fate and their future challenges.

The European Capital of Culture provided the opportunity and possibility for the two cinemas to be re-integrated into the life of their respective cities, in different ways. Victor Yankov, a representative from Plovdiv 2019, will present the case study “Cosmos Case – saving the Cosmos cinema.” recognized as best practice in local government reform by the Council of Europe.

The French artist Maxime Bondu and the French/Bulgarian curator Émile Ouroumov will introduce the “The Colour of the Cosmos” exhibition, which took place in the cinema in 2016.

The presentation and discussion will be held in English
