A new addition this year, the festival is exploring contemporary cinema through a thematic angle. For its first edition, it has chosen adolescence, a subject that resonates with the young people in its audience. Through screenings, interviews, workshops, and meetings, it questions the existence of a French-style teen-movie. Because that ungrateful age is also the age of possibilities, the barriers come down as we encourage teens to participate, watch them on the screen, shine the spotlight on them, and listen to those who magnificently filmed them.
