Film and TV Features competition

For this year’s Cinema Tous Ecrans, we've tuned into what is nearest and dearest, both at the very heart of human relations and in abstract terms.

In doing so we've dished up an incredibly dynamic smoregasbord of films for the international competition whose acoustics hit a nerve with illuminating clarity.

Whether seasoned or first-time directors, from the northern or southern hemisphere, the caliber of these artists is a force to be reckoned with. Their works of art come with a mission not only to entertain, but also to spur reflection and in doing so, they resonate with inescapable truths.

Lean back and let your self be drawn in by these 14 poignant stories that explore universal themes of the human condition. Somewhere between courage and cowardice, it is time for audacity to find its seat in the luring darkness of the cinema.

Let your thoughts run wild: dissect the films, chew them up and swallow them,

digest them and make them your own, but above all, enjoy them…
