The several routes organized were the opportunity for cinemagoers to become reporters and critics for the time of a festival, thanks to a training workshop, meetings with professionals and the production of an interview. These interviews eventually constituted a collection.
Festival Cinéma du Réel (International Documentary Film Festival)
Since its creation in 1979, the Cinéma du Réel festival has become the documentary film festival of reference in France.
Participants to « PARCOURS DE CINÉMA en festivals » met and interviewed director Ariane Astrid Atodji (Koundi and National Thursday), and the directors of the documentary Li ké Terra (Filipa Reis, João Miller Guerra and Nuno Baptista). These two films are part of the section « International competition, First films ». Interviews of the directors are available here.
Festival International de Films de Femmes
My dear neighbours could also be the additional title of the 33rd edition of the festival international de Films de Femmes in Créteil. Always focusing on the notion of others, the International Women Films Festival widens its horizons and focuses, this year, more specifically on the south of Europe.
The films selected for « PARCOURS DE CINÉMA en festivals » also address the question of otherness : it is a question of generational otherness (see the movie Lou) or a social one (see the movie Okupas), but especially the acknowledgment of such this difference, and its acceptance, with no definite judgment.
An interview of the festival director, directed by teenagers, is available here.
