Every year, we welcome new European Festivals to present the film productions of their country and/or their favorites shorts and features!
All these festivals have in common the desire to propose various manners to perceive the world, the urgent need for seeking meaning and creating. As the FIFA, they also make every effort to help the young creation, and so, tempt to find other ways to express oneself.
In 2018, we have the pleasure to welcome:
- Short Waves Festival (Poznan, Poland) - 10th edition : March 20-25 2018
Short Waves Festival, organized by The Foundation of Cultural Education Ad Arte, is a multi-location initiative focusing on the promotion of Polish film creation. From Brazil to Taiwan, audience from around the world will have the opportunity to watch a cutting-edge selection of innovative and surprising short movies from Polish scene. The project is cofunded by the Polish Film Institute.
The selection includes 5 films by young polish directors. Arthouse intertwines with genre cinema and even though serious social themes are touched upon by the program, it leaves room for comedy and experimentation. No two movies are alike however they share three characteristics: they are short, good and Polish.
- FEST - New Directors / New Films Festival (Espinho, Portugal) - 14th edition : June 18-25 2018
FEST – New Directors | New Films Festival focuses, above all, on the discovery of up-and-coming artists, with feature and short film competitions, as well as several side non-competitive sections, which gathers some of the brightest new talents in the world’s scene.
