Less than 4 minutes to express oneself, tell a story or reinvent the world: that’s what’s on offer in the Très Court International Film Festival which, for several years now, has accompanied the emergence of new trends in audiovisual creation all around the world. Be they novices or established, classical or innovators, filmmakers from every possible background gather around a unique and concise format of creation that gives everyone a chance.
To make a film of under four minutes: that’s the only rule to respect. For the rest, imagination and vitality are strongly urged! Every genre is present: fiction, documentary, animation, computer imaging…
The works selected are grouped in a great film mosaic presented in 70 cities in 20 countries all over the world in June. An emerging festival for a cultural globalisation in full swing, which highlights the diversity of identities so they are better shared by all.

The movies in competition are watched by a jury of professionals presided over by a renowned figure (Oscar awarded director Michel Hazanavicius, Nicolas Boukhrief, Aure Atika...).
The jury awards three prizes: the Grand Prix, the Originality Award and the Animation Award. Another jury gives the Women's Words Award.
One other award, the Public Award, unique in the world, is announced a few days later on internet after a count of all the votes cast by audience members in each city having screened the festival programmes.
