Block 8 was born in 2015 around the project of making useful and impactful films, with bold form and subjects. The desire to make our films, documentary or fiction, but also to produce those of a talented generation within which we evolve. A breeding ground of artists, technicians, authors and filmmakers cultivating their passion, involved in their professions, eager for new forms, committed to their time. At Block 8, we know the importance of a cinema that is both popular and demanding. Because every film counts.

“Going out to meet the public, playing with codes, entertaining to better inspire, that’s the cinema we carry film after film.”
