Le Cinéma Club is a uniquely curated streaming platform screening one film every week, for free.

Available for seven days to all visitors globally, selections vary in genre and length, with special attention given to short formats. From the Archives (no longer streaming on the site, but to give you a brief insight into their selections):
MTHUNZI a film by TEBOGO MALEBOGO with Inge Beckmann, Russell Crous, Nala Khumalo & Jamie-Lee Money. 2019, South Africa, 9 min. A suspenseful social thriller from the streets of suburban Cape Town.

GOODBYE MOMMY a film by JACK WEDGE with an original score by ARCA & Will Freudenheim. 2019, USA, 13 min. A space odyssey in neon and noir from a vivid new talent in animation.

ALBERTINE, OU LES SOUVENIRS PARFUMÉS DE MARIE-ROSE a film by JACQUES KEBADIAN. 1972, France, 19 min. An audacious, joyous snapshot of French teenage girls in rebellion.

TO BE FREE a film by ADEPERO ODUYE. 2017, USA, 13 min. Cinematography by Bradford Young. An actor and filmmaker’s elegant tribute to Nina Simone, playing the iconic singer in a performance of “My Way”.

ZONA INQUINATA a film by F. J. OSSANG. 1983, France, 21 min. Gangsters, cowboys, and rockers battle through the lens of a punk futurist filmmaker.

LIST a film by HONG SANG-SOO. 2011, South Korea, 29 min. With Jung Yu-mi, Yoo Joon-sang and Youn Yuh-jung. Effortlessly radical, List is a comically profound affirmation of narrative possibility.
The INDEX page (under ARCHIVES in the dropdown menu) links screened films available on DVD, other streaming services, and elsewhere once no longer available on Le Cinéma Club.

Was really excited to stumble across this earlier today as I've been wanting to watch more short film and this is an easy way to make sure I get at least one in a week while also (hopefully!) getting some interesting contemporary filmmakers on my radar.

The current film (Automatic) is great, and I really like the write-up describing a bit of the filmmaking process. What a wonderful find!
