Best of French Short Films from the Clermont-Ferrand Festival

Best of French Short Films, a program launched by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the US in 2016, offers non-commercial theaters a selection of short films that were presented at the most recent International Short Film Festival - Clermont-Ferrand.

Featuring:

ENNEMIS INTERIEURS

  • 2017 Oscar Nomination for Best Live Action Short Film
  • Director: Selim Azzazi
  •  During the 90s, Algerian terrorism reaches France. Two men. Two identities. One battle.

GAGARINE

  • Directors: Fanny Liatard and Jérémy Trouilh
  • Youri is twenty years old and he has always lived with his mother in a housing development near Paris. Now his building is about to be demolished because of an urban renovation project. But how can you take flight when your spaceship has been grounded?

GHOST CELL

  • Director: Antoine Delacharlery
  •  Both a scientific and dreamlike documentary, GHOST CELL is a stereoscopic plunge into the guts of an organic Paris seen as a cell through a virtual microscope.

GUY MOQUET

  • Director: Demis Herenger
  • Guy Moquet (or Guimo, or Guim’s) promised Ticky to kiss her at dusk in front of everybody, right in the middle of the neighborhood. Maybe not that crazy, but surely not that simple.

PERIPHERIA

  • Director: David Coquard-Dassault
  • A journey into the heart of a great, abandoned council estate. PERIPHERIA depicts an urban environment turning wild: a modern Pompeii where the wind blows and dogs roam through the vestiges of human life.

TOMBÉS DU NID

  • Director: Loïc Espuche
  • Synopsis: Fabio and Dimitri head to the Chicha so that Dimitri can finally perhaps talk to Linda. On the way, they cross a duck with its ducklings.

UNCANNY VALLEY 

  • Director: Paul Wenninger
  • We are bombarded by the intensity of a battle between desperate soldiers during the First World War. Each frame of this animated live-action film reveals its own painful yet detailed history. The numbing futility of war, the agony of conflict and survival, the discovery of brotherhood.
