Building on its successful track record, this event dedicated to short films pursues its exportation across the globe. This year, it will be held in 29 countries.
The second edition of the Fête du Court Métrage (Short Film Festival) will take place from March 14 through 20, 2018. Focusing exclusively on short-format productions, this event will be held throughout France as well as in twenty-eight other countries, including Germany, Russia, China, the USA, Turkey, Japan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Mexico. Around 175 screenings will be held in countries abroad.
A partner of the Fête du Court Métrage event, UniFrance also applauds the inclusion of the work of outstanding talents such as Jessica Palud (winner of the UniFrance Grand Prize for a Short Film in 2017 for Marlon), Alice Vial (director or The Winkles, which earned a Special Mention in the UniFrance Short Film Awards), Alexandre Perez (creator of the virtual reality film Sergent James), and Simon Bouisson (director of the multi-award-winning interactive drama Wei or Die), works which illustrate the diversity and vibrancy of new-generation French artists.
