Thanking the Audience (French: Vue de remerciements au Public) was a 1900 French short silent film directed by Georges Méliès. It was released by Méliès's Star Film Company and is numbered 292 in its catalogues.[1]

The film was designed to be projected at the end of a showing of short films.[2] It depicted seven international figures—"a Frenchman, English soldier, German, Spaniard, Italian lady, Russian, and Turkish lady"—transforming into each other, each displaying the words "Thanks, hope to see you again" in a different language.[3]

Thanking the Audience is currently presumed lost.[1]
