We have tried to make this part of the festival into a sort of discovery-screening where the viewer can find out more about the career of a filmaker, producer, screenwriter or technician, thanks to explanations and stories told by the guest hosting the screening dedicated to them. As a European festival, we have tried to present both French and European guests who are major figures in the world of short film.

The pioneer of animation film production in Brittany, JPL Films covers everything from short films to magazine-format, from series to feature films. This programme captures all the great moments, from the thirty-times award-winner Le Cyclope de la Mer (1998), to La Petite Casserole d’Anatole, nominated at the César awards in 2015. The final three films are a nod to some of the filmakers who are currently collaborating with the studio : Jean-François Laguionie, Augusto Zanovello et Emmanuel Bellegarde.

Simon Ellis is one of the most prolific directors of short films on the European scene. Member of the jury of the 27th Festival in 2012, and often present at the festival with his work, he has, however, never had a screening dedicated to him. Our anniversary was a good opportunity to showcase the career of this king of the short film!
