Events

Alongside the competition programmes of the festival which show the best of European short films of the year, there are several special-event showings programmed throughout the week. Unmissable one-time-only screenings, they bear witness to the support we give to young film talent, be they filmmakers, screenwriters or actors. They also demonstrate that we want to share a good laugh, and highlight a competition and a TV channel who support short films and promote peaceful coexistence.

There will also be tributes: a tribute to Christophe Le Masne, a figure in the short film world, who was a member of the festival jury last year, as well as a tribute to a certain William Shakespeare, programmed at the Quartz just after the festival and who continues to inspire the young filmmakers of today.

 

OPENING NIGHT

Tuesday, November 8th – 7.30pm
Le Quartz, Grand Théâtre
Length: 3 hours without intermission
Single price: 10€

LAUGHTER WITHOUT BORDERS

LE QUARTZ, GRAND THÉÂTRE

Warning: some pictures or words may offend the audience.

Drama is universally sad. But is comedy universally funny? For example, is Finnish humour understood by a Spaniard (and vice-versa)? We'll be searching our brains for an answer to this question through a selection of comedies that knows no frontiers.

AVIS DE TEMPÊTE !

SAMEDI 12 NOVEMBRE – 11H   
LE QUARTZ, GRAND THÉÂTRE

Exactly four centuries ago the most famous son of Stratford-upon-Avon died. His ubiquitous name has haunted all the theatres, bookshops and even projection rooms of the world. William Shakespeare has managed to inspire not only writers and the English, but also the short filmmakers of Europe who are paying him tribute today. We humbly offer our own contribution with this selection of re-interpretations, references or far-off fragments from an immortal work.

SAMEDI 12 NOVEMBRE – 14H
LE QUARTZ, GRAND THÉÂTRE

The competition « HLM sur cour(t) » rewards short films made by young French-language filmmakers of 18 to 30 years old. The aim is to take a fresh look at the suburbs and their inhabitants and generate discussion. Brest 31st Festival and the competition HLM sur cour(t) have united to bring you an exceptional screening of short films made up of sensitive, amusing, intelligent films which shine a light on community living, tolerance, intergenerational relationships and on occasion the particular kind of poetry that can emerge from what appear to be unlikely places. On this occasion, there will be the first public screening of the film Le Large, produced by the association Côte Ouest for the project Zap'h Brest 2016.
