'Barque sortant du port' (also known as 'Boat Leaving the Port') is an 1895 French short black-and-white silent film directed and produced by Louis Lumire.

The film consists of a single shot of a boat leaving the port, being rowed into rough seas by three men. This scene is observed by two women and children who are standing on a nearby jetty.


It was filmed by means of the Cinmatographe, an all-in-one camera, which also serves as a film projector and developer. As with all early Lumire movies, this film was made in a 35 mm format with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1.
