The best of young directors

Bringing emerging talents to light: therein lies the mission of the International Selection of the Poitiers Film Festival. Chosen from among 1,547 registered films, 46 films from 36 schools and from 20 countries invite us to share in a young director’s insight into the world. As always, the Poitiers Film Festival will be keeping tabs on the latest developments in film schools by becoming one of the first festivals in the world to open a competing selection of school features alongside the short film section. With a mixture of genres and techniques, a variety of subjects, and their direct nature, these first films reveal the distinctive personalities of their authors. Their careers will take off in Poitiers. Now is the time to discover the filmmakers of tomorrow!
