Nove lungometraggi in vetrina per l’ACID Cannes Hors les murs
Loin de vous j’ai grandi di Marie Dumora

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

The lack of any physical edition of the 73rd Cannes Film Festival as a direct result of the Coronavirus crisis hasn’t prevented ACID (the French Association for the Distribution of Independent Cinema) from unveiling a 28th programme under the banner "Cannes Outside the Walls" and comprising nine feature films (of which five are works of fiction, four are documentaries and a total five titles are directed by women). Placing special focus on works without distributors and first feature films (with four debut titles gracing this particular line-up), ACID will promote its selection during the online Marché du Film (running 22 – 26 June – read our news), as well as in the autumn by way of screenings geared towards cinema operators in France. Public seances are also planned in Paris (25 – 29 September), Lyon (2 - 4 October) and Marseille (8 - 11 October), and then courtesy of the Corsican Film Archive, as well as a number of partner festivals in France and further afield.
