40TH EDITION

1st > 8 December

We are the place in which films of tomorrow and from elsewhere get discovered. School films are rarities free from market restrictions: melting pots of desires, stories and futures, they are evidence of a certain generation’s outlook on the world. During eight days in Poitiers, young artists, professionals and audiences share a creative flurry of activity through previews, short and feature films screenings, debates, master classes, sandwich-screenings, “Piou-piou” programs for kids, parties…

« What we are looking for is a kind of cinema that does not (yet) fear consequences, that creates without behind hindered and that allows itself anything… a joyful creative exuberance and the budding of tomorrow’s talents.»
