Stay warm, share, discover

For those who would prefer to stay warm, this will be possible in several ways. The screenings of the Palais des Beaux-arts will be presented simultaneously in the museum auditorium.

The competition programs will also be to be discovered in the heat of the Hybrid cinema, on the evenings of September 19 to 24. On Saturday 18th, a “best-of regional creations” evening will be held there, and on Saturday 25th, you will be able to discover courts using virtual reality. Another event to note: the afternoon of Saturday, September 25, from 4 pm, a “café des réals” is organized in the cinema. You will be able to meet and discuss with the directors of the competition who will be in Lille. For this event, reservations are not necessary.

Remember that, like every year, the jury is the spectators! You will be able to vote for your favorite films and determine the festival’s 2021 winners, which will be revealed on the festival’s closing night. The appointment is given on Sunday September 26 at 7 p.m. at the Sébastopol Theater. A nice final in perspective, with the screening of award-winning films.
