Where will the Festival de Cannes be in five years time?

user
A note from the President Politics, allegedly, is the art of answering questions you haven’t been asked. I won’t be doing that today. People often ask: where will the Festival de Cannes be in five years time? The only question that I find important is that of the future of independent, auteur cinema, and thus the future of film festivals, as they are basically the same thing. For a long time I believed that cinema was a kind of royal processional road along which one went from Lu...

Premiers Plans (angers)

The festival features a competition of 60 first films: 10 features, 10 european shorts, 10 french shorts and 30 student films.

Since 1989, the Premiers Plans Film Festival takes place each year in the city of Angers, France. In 2009 its competitive sections, programs and other events attracted some 65 000 filmgoers who discussed and shared their passion of cinema with young European directors and other professionals. Through the years, the Festival has become a major meeting of European cinematographic creation, as numerous directors such as Fatih Akin, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Joachim Lafosse, Matteo Garrone, Arnaud Desplechin, Xavier Beauvois, Nick Park, Cristi Puiu, Paolo Sorrentino and Thomas Vinterberg were originally discovered in Angers with the screening of their first films.

Each year, the Official Selection presents 80 european first films divided in five competitive sections: European first feature films, European first short films, French first short films, student films, and European animated films, as well as two out of competition sections: free style and “next shot”. The official jury and the public award the laureates with 200 000 euros in prize.

Premiers Plans has two major characteristics: it enables the meeting between the public and filmmakers from one generation, and also gives the opportunity to discover or rediscover masterpieces of European cinema on screen through retrospectives highly appreciated and attended by journalists and professionals.

Festival On Wheels

In 1985 Festival of European Films was organized for the first time in order to present distinguished Turkish and European films to audiences in various cities of the country. Features, shorts and animation fils are presented.

Rialto Cinema Classics At MoMA

Monday, July 23-------You may think you know the film that many major film critics chose as the best of last year. But in reality, with little fanfare or certainly Oscar buzz, the film that garnered the most uniform praise from top film scribes was a French thriller, shot in 1959 and set in occupied France during World War II by a director who has been six feet under for more than three decades. That film, ARMY OF SHADOWS, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville, was an astonishingly gritty and involvi...
