Free Viewing: Special Event, Cannes 2017

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival, UniFrance has decided to throw the spotlight on 5 short films directed by 6 filmmakers who are currently showcasing their new films on the Croisette. Free-access viewing online from May 18 to 28 (films subtitled in English).

Six directors of five films: Ilan Klipper, Emmanuel Gras, Vincent Macaigne, Léa Mysius, and the tandem Caroline Poggi/Jonathan Vinel. Each of these filmmakers has gained international acclaim for their short films, and all of them are present this year on the Croisette to show their latest work.

Ilan Klipper and Vincent Macaigne will present The Starry Sky Above Me and Comfort and Consolation in France in the ACID program. Emmanuel Gras and Léa Mysius have been selected at Critics' Week for their films Makala and Ava. Critics' Week also features the Poggi/Vinel duo's third short film, After School Knife Fight.

Discover the singer Christophe in the astonishing short film Juke-Box, the follies of human relationships in What We'll Leave Behind, a sweet perspective on childhood in The Yellow Island, an acknowledgement of the destructive force of hypermodernity in As Long as Shotguns Remain, and daily life, on grassroots level, in A Living Being.

Click on the selected title to view the film. All films have English subtitles.
