Let us begin the International Competition of shorts

Monday, April 30th, is the day that kickstarts the International Competition of short films, which is the section that best demonstrates the enormous talent of dozens of film directors and the variety of the works that are made all around the world.

The first screening of short films, International Competition Shorts 1, is happening at Culturgest PA (19H15) and it is composed of several films: the dreamlike fable Afternoon Clouds, directed by Payal Kapadia (India); the allegorical animation about the world of unemployment and precariousness (Fool Time) JOB, by Gilles Cuvelier (France); the documentary El Cielo de los Animales, by Juan Renau (Argentina), which exposes violence against animals in canine beauty contests; and Coqueluche, by Aurélyen Peyre (France), who brought La bande to Juliette to the festival in 2016, and now offers us a biting comedy about stereotypes (see picture).
