    A lovely festival created and managed with passion and love. A great experience from any point of view, including the fact that it's in Cannes in the same days of the main event.

    A small but wonderful festival. Thoughtful programming (Christian Pouligo) and enthusiastic team. An interesting and delightful experience. And it's in Cannes.
