CinéTransat

CinéTransat

The SIG Patronage Fund contributed to the organisation of the 10th edition of CinéTransat, recognised for its unique spirit and atmosphere.

The films on view are only screened on the pretext to bring people together to experience unforgettable moments! The spectators arrive with a picnic and gather around the barbecue area, settling either on the grass or on deckchairs. They can participate in themed evenings with sets, costumes and entertainment and even sing in front of giant karaoke.
