Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Forced to reinvent itself on account of the health crisis, and having already announced the hybrid form of its Industry Village (read our article), the Les Arcs Film Festival has now unveiled the programme for its 12th edition, which will unfold online between 12 – 19 December with physical screenings set to take place as soon as French cinemas re-open (in the Bourg-Saint-Maurice Valley, and elsewhere in France as part of the new Hors Piste Cinéma programme).

Stealing particular focus on this year’s guest of honour roll call is the Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Holland, who will also be the ambassador of the festival’s Talent Village, as well as the recipient of the 7th Femme de Cinéma award. Belgian actor Jérémie Rénier and French directorial duo Éric Toledano and Olivier Nakache are also set to be celebrated.

The 10 feature films battling it out for the 2020 Crystal Arrow will be assessed by a jury presided over by the French filmmaker and actress Zabou Breitman, who will flanked by director Sophie Letourneur, actor Vincent Macaigne, his colleague (who’s now also a filmmaker) Nicolas Maury and composer Amine Bouhafa.

Meanwhile, a new section named Hors Piste Cinéma (initiated in partnership with Benshi, La Vingt-Cinquième Heure, the Lux Audience Award and the European Film Academy) is asking French cinemas to register before 23 November to get the chance to draw from a selection of ten feature films (including Teddy [+leggi anche:

by Ludovic and Zoran Boukherma) appearing within Les Arcs’ 2020 selection, with a view to screening them as soon as movie theatres re-open in France, up until 31 January.

Well worth a final mention is the short films jury, which will be presided over by actress Karin Viard (flanked by her colleague Noée Abita, the director Charlène Favier, actor Grégory Fitoussi, filmmaker Guillaume Senez and producer Stéphanie Carreras), not to mention the many events and conferences hosted by the festival, such as the Cinema Green Lab, the Femmes de Cinema Lab and the Music Village, all organised in the most inventive manner possible, in accordance with developments in the ongoing health crisis.
