The Paris Festival for Different and Experimental cinema is an annual event organized by the Collectif Jeune Cinéma.
The theme of each edition is submitted to the vote of CJC’s members. The films’ selection is a collective process led by a group of CJC filmmakers who, with their expertise, select experimental films from a large number of films submitted every year from all over the world. The festival promotes cinematographies which focus on the creative act and endeavors to guide audiences by producing editorial contents. Since 1999, the festival is increasingly recognized internationally.
This event is supported by the Region Île-de-France, the DRAC Île-de-France and the City of Paris. The history of this festival is strongly linked to the history of Collectif Jeune Cinéma, a Paris based filmmakers cooperative for distribution.
