Romain Duris and Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi will be the guests of honour at this edition, which will also welcome a huge number of other filmmakers and actors, who will come to celebrate the tenth birthday of an event that this year will inaugurate a “Slope of Fame” that will dot the path running through the Arc 1950 village with signs paying tribute to the great artists of European cinema.

Interestingly, the short-film jury will be chaired by French actor Ramzy Bedia (aided by Croatian filmmaker Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović and actor-director Félix Moati, among others).

And that’s not to mention the professional events (which will be outlined in more detail soon), including the Industry Village, which will bring together almost 500 professionals to check out the 20 projects in the Coproduction Village (15-18 December), the 14 films in Work in Progress (16 December), the new Talent Village (see the news – sponsored this year by Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg) and the Music Village, as well as the Distributors/Exhibitors Summit (18-22 December, with the screening of 12 features, various workshops and the Initiative Lab all on the agenda).
