About

A true celebration of cinema and all its forms of expression, the Festival welcomes more than 150 productions from some 30 countries, including short, medium and full-length features, documentaries, animated films, and fiction films. The Festival puts on quite a show, year after year!

The event stands out through the quality and variety of its program, the impeccable rigor of its technical direction, and the friendliness of its welcoming structure. The Festival proposes a high-quality program of events, abounding in film premieres and forms of expression, thus giving the audience an enlightened overview of cinematographic production across the world.

In parallel to the regular program, the Festival organizes several activities for a broad audience aged from 5 to 99: some of them are for children and school groups, others are tailored to please seniors, and Espace Court reaches a different audience keen on watching underground or marginal films in a casual cabaret-style atmosphere.

A fervent and faithful audience. Famous guests. Excellent media coverage. A team of remarkable professionalism. The unfailing support of the entire community. All this enabled the Festival to gain a reputation as a highly sympathetic happening and to secure itself a leading position among national and international cultural events.

An excellent springboard for artists of the film industry and an inspiring occasion for people to discover new talents, this original event promises unforgettable encounters and discussions with film buffs, journalists and film artists and artisans.
