Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

UPDATE (7 November 2020): Arras Film Festival revisited (7 November – 15 December) had to be cancelled once again due to the second lockdown. Nevertheless the Festival team has decided to show the European competition in private “physical” screenings to the Jury in order to support selected films and to give 2 prizes which one is a distribution aid. The team also decided to hold the 9th ArrasDays session which is an industry platform to pitch new projects currently in development from European producers and directors selected.

Initially forced to give up on its 2020 edition by a municipal by-law from 17 October closing the venues that would have been essential to the festival taking place in its usual format, the Arras Film Festival has quickly gotten back on its feet, reinventing the event to take place in other locations and at a different time.

The European competition and the pitching sessions of the development grant of the Arras Days will take place in Paris, in the cinema L’Entrepôt, from 13 to 15 November.

Eight feature films playing for the first time in France will be competing for the 2020 Golden Atlas: Wildland [+leggi anche:

This huge reorganisation, executed rapidly by the festival team and which also includes a Family and Children Week ( 25 November – 1 December) and a World Cinema Week ( 9 – 15 December) was possible thanks to the exceptional involvement of around 30 cinemas and other events (in particular the Amiens International Film Festival which will unfold from 13 to 21 November).
