Since 2002, Lobster Films has been a part of the editing of cinema classics in DVD and Blu-ray. Comedies, dramas, slapsticks, experimentak films... there is something for everyone. Today, hundreds of films are available in their restored version. Lobster Films also contributes in the coediting of great classics with its partners and friends from ARTE, the Éditions Montparnasse, MK2, Tamasa and many others.

Our catalogue is available through our online shop where you will find our entire collection, but also imported films we have edited abroad.

Méliès, Chaplin, the best Retour de Flamme movies, A Trip to the Moon in colour, L'Enfer by Henri-Georges Clouzot, Les Premiers pas du cinéma, Bowers, Chase, Keaton, great classics of silent and sound films... You have seen nothing yet!



For the year 2017, we have a few surprises planned. What we have planned: A new enhanced release of our Retour de Flamme DVD box set, a project that we hold dear. As for the French films, Arletty leads the dance in "Gibier de Potence", as for Michel Simon will impress in "Le Ruisseau" by Maurice Lehmann. 2017 is also the year of tributes: to avant-garde cinema, in a prestigious box set, to the beginnings of Henri-Georges Clouzot in 6 unknown feature films, to the centennial of the 1917 Russian Revolution and to Cecil B. DeMille's masterpiece "The King of Kings", newly restored. And finally, a tribute to the Chaplin family with two beautiful documentaries on the origins of the Tramp and his brother Sydney, his collaborator and talented supporter. There is something for everyone!


COMING IN 2017...

  • A boxset on the beginnings of Henri-Georges Clouzot
  • One of the first disaster movies in film history
  • The secrets of Charlie Chaplin
  • A tribute to avant-garde cinema
  • King of Kings by Cecil B. DeMille in a new restored version
  • ... and many more surprises!


The Retour de Flamme collection takes its name because of an audacious bet: that of preserving and saving unknown films, destined to fall into oblivion. Divided into two identities, blue (French feature films) and orange (silent feature films), it goes aling with a film catalogue from light comedies to dramas, adventure films and cloak-and-dagger films. A delicious trip in time for the whole family!



For over 15 years, Lobster Films and its partners have been commited to film restoration and to the editing of great movie classics in completely restored versions. Man with a Movie Camera in 2014, L'Inhumaine by Marcel L'Herbier in 2015, The General in 2016, The King of Kings by Cecil B. DeMille in 2017... All these films have undergone a real renaissance thanks to the latest digital technologies. With music settings by great composers like Robert Israel and Joe Hisaishi, they were then edited into prestigious boxsets and completed with numerous bonuses explaining the course of their restoration.



Throughout the construction of the Lobster Films catalogue we have acquired the rights to hundreds of images and photographs often accompanying the release of the films. These exceptional documents are an invitation to travel, from the privacy of the studios to the splendour of the film sets. Discover some of these unique images in our postcards collection, that includes restored photographs from Charlie Chaplin to Buster Keaton, King Kong and Romy Schneider!
