From Georges Méliès' Journey to Valérian and Luc Besson's City of a Thousand Planets, special effects have accompanied the cinema, pushing the limits of our imagination ever further. For the CNC, partnering this exhibition with the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie was an obvious choice, to allow everyone to enter into the magic of creation. Through this major exhibition, we want to show the public that France has considerable assets in the field of special effects. A field of excellence in which many French talents stand out. And I hope that discovering what goes on behind the scenes of these professions will give rise to many vocations among the youngest spectators and that they will thus become the creators of tomorrow...".Frédérique Bredin, President of the CNC.
