Over the years, the short film format has increasingly gained recognition as an art form in its own right – both amongst critics and in the popular imagination. Keeping this growing interest in mind, Alliance Française de Bombay will bring exclusive screenings from the Très Court International Film Festival on June 13 and 14 in its Head Office at Theosophy Hall. 2019 marks the 21st Edition of the Festival with Michel Hazanavicius, Director of the 2012 Oscar-winning Film The Artist, appointed as the Head of the Jury. This year’s edition is being organised in partnership with Institut Français and TV5 MONDE and will consist of simultaneous film screenings in over 80 cities in France and 20 other countries. 2019 also marks the first iteration of the Très Court International Film Festival in India.

The goal of the Festival is to represent the très court format which consists of films of any genre (fiction, animation, documentary, music video, video blog etc.) which are less than 4 minutes long. For the Indian edition, there will be three sets of screenings. On June 13, the first set of films from the International Competition will be screened followed by a set of Francophone films. On June 14, the second set of films from the International Competition will be shown followed by a repeat screening of the Francophone films. The audience will be encouraged to vote for their favourite films in the International Competition section. This voting happens in all host venues of the festival around the world and the overall winning film gets 500 Euros as the Prix du Public or People’s Choice Award.

The International Competition selection in 2019 consists of some of the most-critically acclaimed short films from Germany, Portugal, Spain, France, UK, Brazil, Australia, USA, Norway, Taiwan, Canada, and Turkey. All films will be subtitled in English with each screening being free and open to the general public. Overall, the Très Court International Film Festival promises to be a rare treat for the cinephiles of Mumbai and is expected to draw large crowds to Alliance Française de Bombay!
