Popular city marked by industrialization, Aubervilliers holds its place in the history of French cinema. Since the shooting of Eli Lotar's documentary film Aubervilliers on comments and songs by Jacques Prévert, many films have been shot in Aubervilliers and a filming office offers professionals to assist them in their research.

Ciné-Balade will take you from the Boxing Beats boxing center to the Marlène Peratou nautical center, passing through the Aubervilliers laboratories and other equally unusual sites to discuss the latest films and series hosted in Aubervilliers: Le Chant du loup, L 'Emperor of Paris, Rue des Cités, Engrenages, Le Bureau des Légendes, K Contraire, etc.
