The Home Movie Factory
Inspired by his film Be Kind Rewind, internationally celebrated film director Michel Gondry conceived The Home Movie Factory. The Home Movie Factory is a truly unique and interactive exhibition, which after shows in Paris, New York, and Rotterdam, is now being set up in Johannesburg by The Bioscope Independent Cinema as part of The France-South Africa Seasons 2012 & 2013.
The Home Movie Factory invites the general public at no charge, to star in and make their very own movies through a formula designed by Gondry himself. The filming will take place within an interactive exhibition of backgrounds, props and costumes that will reflect the iconic and everyday aspects of Johannesburg.

The Bioscope is proud to be in partnership with The National Film and Video Foundation on this project, as well as The National Arts Council and The French Institute.
