Lumiere Film Festival in Lyon was created in 2009 by the Institut Lumière and it has become one of the largest international festivals of classic cinema. In 2016, 160 500 festivalgoers attended 397 screenings in 60 venues in the Lyon Metropolis.
The festival takes place around 15/20 October every year and it hosts a "Marché International du Film Classique". The Creative Europe MEDIA Programme has the intention to organise a European Film Forum event in its context in 2018.
