At 5.30pm on each day of the festival, there is a « special session »; a short lesson in film, the session will be about a filmmaker, a production company or an organisation that encourages film creation. There are discussions and encounters before each screening, a great opportunity to speak with film professionals about the behind-the-scenes of their projects and careers and their ups-and-downs.
As a European festival, we hold dear the opportunity to open up these sessions to Europe and present the career-paths of emblematic characters and organisations of the short film world. Although they are open to everyone, these sessions are particularly recommended for aspiring filmmakers.
JEUDI 10 NOVEMBRE - 10H30 - LE QUARTZ, PETIT THÉÂTRE
Six short films are brought together in this new programme with the intention of showing forms and stories that are pertinent and varied, for a screening that is both pleasurable and thoughtprovoking. The stories of Youri, Anna, Hakim or Fabio question our dreams, values and ideas, but also our behaviours and the quirks of our society. After the screening, there will be the opportunity to converse about the films with Benoît Martin, the director behind La convention de Genève.
