Les Nuits en Or

L’Académie des César présente le Panorama, un programme exceptionnel qui rassemble l'ensemble des films de courts métrages récompensés en 2015 par leur Académie Nationale de Cinéma (Oscar, Goya, Bafta…).

Un voyage extraordinaire autour de la planète cinéma, à la découverte des cultures du monde et des cinéastes de demain.

Qui n’a pas rêvé de rencontrer Jane Campion, Lars Von Trier ou encore David Lynch à leurs débuts quand personne ne soupçonnait encore tout à fait la carrière qui les attendait ?

Refléter l’excellence cinématographique et célébrer le meilleur du film court, remarquable moyen d’expression permettant de faire éclore chaque année tant de nouveaux talents, c’est l’ambition du Panorama.

Nouveauté cette année, le Panorama est accueilli par 9 Académies de Cinéma Européennes et sillonne autant de capitales : Madrid, Lisbonne, Athènes, Rome, Genève, Luxembourg, Bruxelles, Stockholm et Paris !

Une occasion unique pour les Académies de Cinéma Européennes d’engager une coopération novatrice de mise en valeur de la diversité cinématographique mondiale et de participer, à leur manière, à l’échange entre les cultures.

Reflecting Cinema excellence and celebrating the best of the short film production, a remarkable means of expression that reveals new talents every year, these are the ambitions of the Nuits en Or’s Panorama.

New this year, the Panorama is hosted by 9 European Film Academies and travels through several capitals: Madrid, Lisbon, Athens, Rome, Geneva, Luxembourg, Brussels, Stockholm and Paris !
