For over 20 years now, this establishment, which it is said has “an extraordinary soul”, welcomes a wide audience. And this is all down to its choice of arthouse films, repertoire films as well as mainstream film national releases and preview showings, with film teams and crews as guests. A festival with incredible experience!
That of Betty Barr and Rainer, the directors. During this event, they centre stage European, African and Brazilian films, organize a European competition for shorts (30 min maximum) and a competition for nanos (less than 45 seconds!).
And, not forgetting, of course, the CNC (French National Centre for Cinema and the Moving Images) which rolls out its Talents campaign offering young filmmakers from the region the opportunity to present their shorts projects and take advantage of the expertise and advice from festival-participating cinema professionals.
The International Contis Festival confirms its wide-ranging cultural vocation by proposing on its agenda visual art, shows, performances and discussions. Everything you need to spend some brilliant moments, immersed in a film or enjoying a concert or meal in a really friendly atmosphere!
The International Contis Festival is sponsored by the French National Commission for UNESCO.
