Armelle Pain grew up in the Vendée Bocage where, against all odds and thanks to a few smugglers, she discovered a sensitivity for contemporary artistic creation and more particularly for author cinema.
With a multidisciplinary background combining life sciences, human sciences and local development, she has worked on the design and development of projects within cultural structures such as Premiers Plans in Angers, the French Cultural Center Georges Méliès in Ouagadougou, Atmosphères 53 , cinemas in Marseille, Mulhouse, Nantes, etc. and the implementation of public policies in favor of cinema (Department of Loire-Atlantique and Region of Pays de la Loire). She also had the opportunity to rub shoulders with publishing (coordination of works devoted to the heritage of Vienne and Mayenne), the processing of information and the drafting of articles, summary notes and publications. studies (English Nature, INA Mediterranean, Institute of Tropical Medicine, PACA Deposits and Consignments Fund, etc.).
