2020… needless to say, what a year! Through many ups and downs, our team has managed to reinvent itself countless times, reimagine the codes and the purpose of a film festival in the midst of an unprecedented crisis. Agility and creativity were our watchwords. We are very proud of everything that has been accomplished and excited to have our precious festival goers embark upon the immersive adventure of our 2020 online edition. We have worked very hard to offer you a rich and surprising program, in conditions that imitate a real festival, with all the warmth and anticipation that comes along with it. 

We would like to thank our dear sponsors, some of which have been deeply affected by the current crisis, but have nonetheless stuck with us. We will always be thankful for your generosity and the trust you have bestowed upon us through the thick and thin. Many thanks to our board of directions for their vision, our numerous collaborators and last but not least, our wonderful volunteers.

Have a great festival everyone!
