Film Festival

Description

Created in 2010. With the peculiarity to defend a strong artistic course, by presenting within the competition only undistributed, original films. The Festival builds upon two main ideas: cinematographic discovery on one hand, through the revelation of quality works to the public and critics; exchanges and transmission on the other hand, through encounters and an in-depth approach to film with the artists and professionals that participate in its construction. Five sections : an international competition of feature films refereed by a jury; the Homage section dedicated to a renowned artist, in his/her presence (Marco Bellocchio in 2010, Jean-Pierre Léaud in 2011) : a section devoted to revealing and promoting filmmaking in the Pyrenees; a section for children and pupils; and finally special sessions (avant-premiere…) completing the overall schedule.
