Nuits blanches

For the first time, Festival Tous Ecrans invites you to discover our midnight screening programme Nuits blanches, which joyfully blends electronic music, television horror series premieres and titillating films.

Following the very official festival opening ceremony on Thursday October 31st, DJ Lady Black Sally will kick off the night-time celebrations with a mix of garage, rock'n' roll and mambo from 11:30 p.m. Meanwhile, Ciné 17 will turn into the antechamber of hell for a Swiss premiere screening of American Horror Story: Coven, the quintessential made-in-the-USA gothic horror.

On Friday November 1st, Radio Télévision Suisse will take possession of Les Bastions, and Joh Erba, the mash-up master of Métissages on Couleur 3, will be getting festival-goers into the groove. Just around the corner, the walls of Ciné 17 will be splattered with blood for the Swiss premiere of the series Hannibal, followed by a screening of the chilling epic Manhunter by Michael Mann.

In partnership with Swissôtel Métropole, the precious Pierre Siankowski from Inrocks magazine will open Saturday’s hostilities with two separate performances: an electro-infused teatime at 5 p.m. at Swissôtel Métropole’s Mirror Bar (to reserve, please call 022 318 34 64) and a glamorous, decadent night at Les Bastions beginning at 10:30 p.m. A surprise guest should appear at the turntables; meanwhile, Ciné 17 will blush with delight at the tantalizing Les rencontres d’après-minuit by Yann Gonzalez and the unbridled Il est des nôtres by Jean-Christophe Meurisse.

On Sunday night, Pato and Lo will roll out the red carpet of British sounds (rock, electro, funk) at Les Bastions, to be followed on Monday evening by DJ Schnautzi’s own mix of house, calypso and bass music. Tuesday, TANZ TANZ will shower festivalgoers with an outpouring of elegant disco house. On Wednesday comes a radical change in atmosphere as the 1900 room of the former Kiosque is transformed into a tropical paradise with the alternative Brazilian grooves of Discotecario Doca.

Last but not least, the festival will lower its curtain to an irrepressibly Japanese-style soundtrack - electro, funk, dubstep - from the V duo (Dj's Otk & Awp?!?!) in honour of the closing film, Yurusarezaru mono.
