🇫🇷 🌊📽️
We are inspired by the new wave of French Cinema and we believe cinema has the ability to tell any story in any way to make people feel, share, experience and even experiment.

We proceed to a high-end selection, with the objective is to mix interactive talent competition with a human scale quality selection.
We accepts films from all over the world : we are an international film festival.
