The Chopard Directors Award will be handed out by a very high-ranking jury chaired by French director Michel Gondry, who will be assisted by Belgium’s Joachim Lafosse, Israel’s Nadav Lapid and Mauritania’s Abderrahmane Sissako.

Topped off by a Quebec feature film out of competition, a heritage film (Purple Noon by René Clément), ten shorts in competition and one out of competition, the festival programme will be available in 13 languages and accessible from all around the world on myfrenchfilmfestival.com or via 25 partner platforms (including iTunes in over 90 countries). The features that will be watchable through the purchase of a pack (€9.99) or individually (€1.99) will, however, be offered free of charge in Latin America, China, India, Poland, Russia and Turkey. The short films, meanwhile, will be available free of charge everywhere.
