les arcs european film festival

Les Arcs Film Festival celebrates its 14th birthday in Arc 1950 le Village!

Double opening on December 10th, 2022: the Les Arcs ski area and the Les Arcs Film Festival for a very special week combining quality skiing on the winter’s first snow, preview screenings of new films and impromptu meetings with actors and celebrities in Arc 1950 le Village.   

The Les Arcs Film Festival is a major cultural event! Les Arcs Film Festival aims to promote the diversity of European cinema and to discover the many talents of our continent.

Located in the heart of the Alps, in one of the most beautiful ski areas in the world, the festival is an opportunity to enjoy the first snow and film screenings throughout the day in the presence of directors and actors. All this in a festive atmosphere with unforgettable evenings, entertainment, concerts and DJs!

For this fourteenth edition, the Festival invites our neighbours, with whom we share the most beautiful mountains in Europe, to a section dedicated to Alpine cinema, with a focus on films from Switzerland, Austria and the Alpine regions of Italy and France.

The 2022 edition

This year's competition will consist of eight films. It is a selection that, as usual, will explore the four cardinal points of Europe. The works are demanding. They deal with serious subjects in a light-hearted way, which is very delicate and exciting.

The selection committee is inter-generational. This selection bears the vision of this mix of generations, a modernity on many levels. The young people push us and we exchange by also offering our reality and our experience.

This year, Roschdy Zem, a distinguished actor, respected director and major figure in French cinema today, will be the president of the Jury. Known for his roles in auteur films, popular comedies, psychological films and thrillers, he will be accompanied by Jeanne Balibar, Fanny Herrero, Filippo Meneghetti and Nadia Tereszkiewicz.
