This Festival opens the door to unmissable evenings celebrating the magic of the short film, often associated with other forms of art.
THE MEETING PLACE FOR YOUNG EUROPEAN FILMMAKERS IN NICE
The Nice European Short Film Festival Un Festival C’est Trop Court! is an event dedicated to young cinematographic creation. Committed to announcing new trends, it gathers every year for a week, films and audiences from all over Europe, forming a fresh and unprecedented cultural effervescence in Nice.
Through several competitive programmes, this festival presents diverse, unique and innovative works that highlights the creativity and originality of short films. Meet our Festival’s website here.
Un Festival C’est Trop Court! is made up of 4 official competitions that are voted upon by professional juries:
European Competition (films produced and/or co-produced in Europe)
Courts d’ici (films shot and/or produced in the South of France and Corsica)
Experience (competition of experimental films, video art, new cinema)
Animation (competition of films from European animation schools)
This festival is unique on the French Riviera for this kind of film. Classified category 1 by the CNC (centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée), it is also an important space for professional exchanges and meetings during the Nice Short Meeting.
Scheduled during the Festival, this is a day dedicated to training workshops and meetings between authors and producers. On another side, thematic round tables put into perspective the artistic and economic stakes of short films.
TRAVAUX EN COUR(T)S (WORKS IN PROGRESS)
A call for scripts is launched every year for the workshop Travaux en Cour(t)s in the framework of the Nice Short Meeting. Four authors are selected to pitch their script in front of writing and production specialists. They will then be interviewed individually for guidance. The award, chosen among the 4 candidates, will participate in the Young Authors workshop of the Tous Courts festival in Aix-en-Provence.
The Héliotrope association is also a leading operator in image education in the Alpes-Maritimes. It offers students from the Academy the opportunity to take part in the festival through adapted screenings, film workshops or to meet professional technicians as part of the day of discovery of the cinema professions.
In 2021, Un Festival C’est Trop Court! will celebrate its 21th anniversary. A festive programme is underway, with a big desire, more than ever, to gather together to share this cultural event. Our dates are maintained. See you for the 21th edition from October 8 to 15.
