After a 2020 edition which reinvented itself online as a hybrid event, on account of the pandemic, the Les Arcs Film Festival is returning to the Savoyard mountains with a 13th edition set to unfurl between 11 and 18 December, whose highly appealing programme has just been revealed.

Standing tall among the festival’s guests of honour, we find French filmmaker Laurent Cantet (Arthur Rambo [+leggi anche:

Last but not least, the short films jury will be presided over by director Rachel Lang (flanked by her sister-in-arms Zoé Wittock, actors Hugo Becker and Sandor Funtek, and actresses Christa Theret and Alma Jodorowsky), while the Industry Village event is set to welcome industry professionals from 11 to 14 December (hosting the Co-Production Village, the Work in Progress section and the Talent Village) before giving way, between 14 and 18 December, to the Les Arcs Summit (preceded online, between 10 and 25 November, by a dozen or so films for professional eyes only, including Le monde d’hier by France’s Diastème, the documentary L’Empire du silence by Belgium’s Thierry Michel and the animated feature Unicorn Wars by Spain’s Alberto Vázquez). And that’s without forgetting the Music Village, the Femmes de Cinéma lab, the ecological awareness Moving Mountains programme, conferences, workshops and the Off Piste Cinema initiative (initiated last year to allow French cinemas to organise screenings of films drawn from a selection of ten feature-length works offered up by the Les Arcs Film Festival).
