La Cinémathèque française is a not-profit organisation supported by the Ministry for Culture and Communication. It was founded in 1936 by the good will of Henri Langlois and a handful of far thinking individuals who wanted to save films from the silent era.

Another essential aim is the dissemination beyond its walls and the transmission, throughout an offer of cultural and educational action.
