Every year we're lucky enough to get short films from all over Europe and certain trends appear. A very festive part of the festival, the Brest Off is well-named. Throughout the three programmes, each film explores an aspect of the same theme. The short films are concerned with the same idea and speak to each other, beyond genres, nationalities or stories.
Films avec chauffeurs
MERCREDI 9 NOVEMBRE – 22H
This first programme won't take you on a journey because during these films the characters never (or hardly ever) leave their vehicles, showing that stories can develop even within such a closed-in atmosphere.
JEUDI 10 NOVEMBRE – 22H
The second programme takes us off to the country of the Narvalos. Fun and slightly wierd films that explore failure in all its forms. There is greatness in defeat, and the losers we follow are better than than heroes and their stories are more endearing than those that make a mockery.
L'habit ne fait pas le zombie
VENDREDI 11 NOVEMBRE – 22H
During the third programme, you will play a part in the success of the screening. On Friday, it's fancy-dress at the Quartz! The evening's selection concerns costumes. Characters dress up to reinvent themselves, to get closer to something or as a means of escape. Disguise has never been so important, and of course, you are invited to dress up as well…
