The 2023 edition
The competition comprised eight films. It was a selection that explored the four cardinal points of Europe. The works were demanding and dealt with serious subjects in a light-hearted way, which is very delicate and exciting.
The selection committee was inter-generational. This selection reflected the vision of this mix of generations, a modernity on many levels to shake up and exchange on reality and experience.
This year, we're delighted to welcome a jury chaired by Asghar Farhadi, who will be joined by Rebecca Marder, Vincent Lacoste, Irène Drésel and Christine Angot. We will also have a wonderful short film jury, presided over by Mona Achache, accompanied by Victor Belmondo, Lucie Debay, Patrick Fabre, Fanny Sidney and Mees Peijnenburg.
In 2023, we will be honouring Dutch cinema. Through this focus, the festival wishes to underline the vitality and dynamism that drive Dutch productions and recall the major place that Dutch cinema occupies at European and international level. The Netherlands will be given pride of place both in the festival programme and in the selection of projects currently being developed and produced in the Industry Village. The Industry Village will be a real meeting point for professionals and talent from the Netherlands.
