Cinema Research Library

MEDIA Salles has become a reference point for gaining knowledge of the cinema sector, receiving, collecting and co-ordinating numerous studies, research projects and analyses on cinema-going and on the structural transformations that European cinema exhibition has been undergoing in the last few years. This is the sense behind the "Call for Papers" initiative: an invitation to professional players, academicians and students to send MEDIA Salles their research and analyses so that they can be more easily circulated.
