Carte blanche for CANAL+’s programme Courts et Créations
“What do voices from the beyond, the World Cup Finals, a call for help to space aliens, an ambush by a gang of Amazons and a young transgender person’s techno party all have in common?
They are all unique stories told with originality and talent!
Showcasing cinematic uniqueness and inventiveness, unearthing and guiding the emerging artists of tomorrow’s Cinema is all part of the principles of CANAL+’s programme Courts et Créations.
The Carte Blanche selections, which the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival accords us, is our chance to share some of the cinematic possibilities that we bring in, buy and broadcast on our stations throughout the year.
When it comes to acquisitions, the films are already there, in front of us, completed. When it comes to pre-purchases, as is the case here, our involvement is different. We discover a script, meet the filmmaker and their cinematic world, the Production team’s intentions for its development. From that point on, we have to imagine as precisely as possible what the film will become. Over the course of several months, the short film is put together and shown.
So it is with very great pleasure that we invite you to discover five short films that are proof of the endlessly renewable creativity that we profoundly believe in.
