Festival des Idéo - 19 August - 6 September

Who says there's nothing to do in Paris in August? This is probably the best times of the year to visit Paris as there still remains quite a bit of activity without all the crowds that you can expect at any other time of the year.

The annual festival des Idéo, offers screening "en plein aire" (outdoors) at the Bellevilloise 19-21 rue Boyer in Paris' 20th district.

While the Moonlight Cinema festival is larger and more widespread all over Paris, the advantage of the Fesitval des Idéo for non-French speaking travelers is that it screens old silent movies.

The loft space also offers a digital installation for kids and the screenings. Tickets are from 4-6.50€ while some shows are free. Purchase 5 tickets for 25€. Visit the Bellevilloise site for more details.
