From Hobby to Profession
Lionel Faverie, who created the company MAUVAIS GENRES, has worked 15 years in Press and Media Industry. He is passionate about “Genre” movies since he went to 1984 Avoriaz Film Festival at the age of 13, and very logically, he is collecting vintage movie documents ever since. By creating www.mauvais-genres.com, he wishes to share his passion and to propose a store fully dedicated to all fellow B-movie lovers.
What We Do
www.mauvais-genres.com is an Online Store specialized in movie memorabilia, all related to “Genre” Movies : original pressbooks and heralds, signed photos and movie scripts, theatre-used movie posters, rare storyboards and great artworks, always in decent condition. We also propose a selection of interesting reproductions, for example a copy of a script with an authentic signature, or the hand-made replica of a legendary prop. And because we value our customers, we also provide careful and fast delivery, a "Satisfied or Refunded" Guarantee, and a reactive Customer service.
Being committed movie lovers and collectors ourselves, we also wish this website to become an educational place for B-movies lovers and collectors: each item of our catalogue has a detailed description of the related movie or artist, in order to place the item within its historical context. Some technical information will also be displayed, for example about vintage documents storage and protection, grading systems, sizes and types.
Therefore, our website is dedicated to various publics:
- Movie Collectors of course, who are looking for 100% authentic vintage documents, or technical info about their storage and preservation
- Professionals (movie Theatres, bars, restaurants…) or Individuals (Home Cinema) who want a remarkable and vintage decoration
- Film Schools and Students who seek historical and educational documents (scripts, storyboards…)
- Movie Fans who intent to own a prop or a document signed by their favorite artist
- And anybody who wants to offer an original gift, 100% vintage.
