Review the 2015 program of Les Arcs European Film Festival!



Promoting the diversity of European cinema

The major event marking the beginning of the winter season, the Festival is an opportunity for our visitors to experience here in France an ambitious and original programme of more than 70 films and, above all, to mix the pleasure of snow  riding sports and the joys of the cinema. After each showing, the audience can chat with film crews (directors, actors) to make this gathering a moment of true sharing and an unforgettable experience.

Every year... a featured country!

This year, the countries of the former Yugoslavia are in the spotlight. Every year one or more European countries are highlighted. Apart from the individual attention they receive, a particular choice will enable devoted cinema fans as well as neophytes to enter the world of Yugoslav directors.

Through this promotion of the diversity of European cinema and its talents, every film shown brings cultural values to the les Arcs European Film Festival: novelty, quality, originality and diversity. Amongst the works shown, ten films are in pre -première, 12 films are official entries for the Flèche de Cristal (crystal arrow), 7 films that have won awards in their countries of origin are being shown in Panorama, 12 films highlight the featured country and 8 films are suitable for an educational programme.

A festival of multiple facets...

Apart from its broad appeal, the les Arcs European Film Festival has a Special place for those who are making the films of tomorrow and for those who will be watching them; our children...

Some high spots... for the professionals!

This truly professional gathering is attended by nearly 900 guests from the world of film (directors, film crews, European film schools, producers, directors etc) who meet every year to bring new projects to light. Thus, the co-production Village, the “Work in progress ", the DIRE days and numerous lectures are all special moments promoting the spread of European cinema.

Sessions... for school children!

Because our cherished blonde heads need to be made aware of culture as soon as possible, screenings have been set up specially for the pupils of the schools in our valley. A mini debate will take place after the showings to encourage discussion of the images they have seen and the subject tackled.
