WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A FILMMAKER TODAY?

One filmmaker answers this question before each feature.

Strange paradox at a time when cinema attendance rate is excellent.
Screens of all kinds, globally, invade our daily lives and trivialize images as never before.
Today, everyone makes images. But making images does not mean making a movie. . .

NOVELS, ADAPTATIONS AND AUTOBIOGRAPHIES BY THE FILMMAKERS

Create a wonderful Festival keepsake or purchase a gift for friends and family. Do not forget to have members of the 28th French Film Festival delegation sign your copy…

Available for Signing by the Authors at the Festival.
