2nd edition of the Socially Relevant Festival in New York

Five French films and coproductions will feature in the 2015 edition of this new New York film festival (March 16 - 22), focusing on cinema's humanist side.

The Socially Relevant Film Festival in New York is a new event, organized since 2014, whose aim is to present films with a social resonance, in response to the proliferation of violence in contemporary cinema.

This year, 53 films from 33 countries will demonstrate that cinema can also be used to relate stories about humanity: discrimination, the environment, LGBT rights, men's violence toward women, immigration, and exile are central subjects. 

The festival will open with a Turkish/German/Frence coproduction, Were Dengê Min (Come to My Voice), by Huseyin Karabey.

The other French features or coproductions in the lineup: The Challat of Tunis by Kaouther Ben Hania, and We Will Live Somewhere Else by Nicolas Karolszyk.

In terms of short films, audiences will be able to see Umudugudu! by Giordano Cossu, and Zacharie Doesn't Live Here Anymore by Alberto Segre (France/Italy).
