L’Europe autour de l’Europe - European film Festival Paris will run from March 14th until March 27th 2023 in Paris and Île-de-France.
Its selection presents art-house and author films produced by the countries of Greater Europe (members of the Council of Europe) focusing on connections between classic European filmmakers and new talents of contemporary cinema. One of the festival's main objectives is to strengthen the creative audiovisual industry network across Europe.
In addition to screenings and Q&A with filmmakers, the Festival presents public masterclasses and panel discussions with prestigious guests from Europe.
L'Europe autour de l'Europe is where the new European film meets the European value-keeping cinema.

The authors of the best film in each competition category ( Prix SAUVAGE, Prix PRESENT, Prix SAUVAGE CORTO) are awarded a Dancing Wolf statuette, the symbol of the Festival.
Prix LUNA is awarded by the jury of cinema students and young professionals to the best film of the feature competition in parallel with the Prix SAUVAGE.

We accept submissions of films (co)produced in Europe by one or more of the countries of Greater Europe (members of the Council of Europe).
- Features (60’ and more) never released in France, produced in 2021 or later.
- Documentaries (60’ and more) produced in 2021 or later.
- Shorts films (fiction, documentary, animation, experimental) up to 30' in length, and have been produced in 2021 or later.
- If you think your film fits our program perfectly but doesn't match the criteria of length and/or year of production, we invite you to submit it for one of our non-competition sections: THEMA, Vie Sauvage. We will consider it.
