La Cinémathèque de Tanger (CdT) s’est installée en décembre 2006 dans les murs du cinéma Rif (1938). Entièrement rénovée, la CdT dispose d’équipements uniques dans la région : deux salles de projections (365 places et 75 places) équipées pour le 35mm, le 16mm, et la vidéo. La CdT dispose également d’une bibliothèque, d’un café, d’une salle de montage et de post-production, et d’un centre de consultation dédié à nos archives. Résolument plurielles, les activités que nous déployons ont fait de la CdT un espace essentiel et incontournable de la vie culturelle de la région : projections de classiques du cinéma et de films arabes récents, programmations hebdomadaires de courts-métrages et de documentaires, ateliers de formation au documentaire et festival dédié au jeunes Talents, et programmations hors les murs au Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), à la Photographers’ Gallery (Londres), à la Stills Gallery (Edimbourg), et à la dernière Biennale de Séville.
Le dynamisme de la CdT lui a permis de rejoindre dès 2007 la FIAF, qui ressemble la communauté internationale des Archives du Film.

English

The Cinematheque de Tanger (CDT) is a not-for-profit organization under Moroccan tax codes Cinema Rif, on the historic Grand Socco plaza, in the heart of Tangier, Morocco. The theater stands in the Grand Socco, the heart of the city, at the auspicious intersection of the old (the medina) and the new.

The CDT’s mission is to bring the great films of cinema history and today to our audience, to become Morocco’s premiere venue for world cinema releases, and to archive and bring to light the unseen legacy of Moroccan film. Up until it was closed for renovations, the Rif was one of only a handful of active cinemas in Tangier and played B-rated Bollywood films. The mission of the CdT is to be Morocco’s leading movie house for independent cinema and repertory programming and a pioneer for programming in the arab wormd. We are at once an institute for film education for children, students and professionals, and a place for the open exchange of culture and ideas.

The Cinematheque de Tanger is intent on promoting social development hand in hand with the economic development happening in Tangier today.
