    Response from festival:

    And we're so sorry about that we will tighten our communication and be more careful. We already talked about what happened of course and we will be careful for the years to come.
    Thank you for your understanding and we can't wait to have you back :)

  • It is always a pleasure to be at the PIAFF, whether with or without a submission. The team around Alexis, Anna and Marie-Pauline is great and takes care of the artists as well as the audience. The selection in the short, student, experimental and music competitions is very diverse and there's never a dull moment. After the screenings, you can learn a lot about the artists at the Q&As. Every evening after the screenings there is an opportunity to get to know the artists and the team over beer, wine and french fries. The PIAFF is an absolute recommendation!
