Thanks for your support

Lights, camera, action!

Tagora members and friends interested in getting involved in audiovisual productions under the aegis of Tagora are invited to a short meeting to talk about possibilities. The Amicale’s Video-Photo Club ceased activity some years ago, and with it the film productions, ranging from coverage of Amicale events to original creations.
