Certainly small, because it comes down to two prizes: that of the public and that of high school youth Charles-Péguy following the cinema option.

All films shown are not in competition. The organizers made a selection: 7 for each category (which can be found in the festival booklet). Therefore, anyone can be a member of the jury. A prestige.

To see movies that weren’t shown at the Constable

This festival is also an opportunity to see films that would not have screened in Clisson.

For example, let’s mention Eo, an Italian-Polish film, which tells the world seen through the eyes of an animal; or butterfly visionUkrainian drama escaped from a prison in Donbass or even Detecta dramatic comedy about the struggle of workers to buy back their factory promised to an investment fund.

All the saltassociations in particular hope to have higher levels by the end of 2022.

The agent has not stopped mobilizing since the end of the crisis. The 49And the festival edition is an example of this.
