A word from our partners

Région Sud, land of cinema, supports artistic creation

Over the last few years Région Sud has substantially consolidated its position as a haven for films and festivals by supporting the making and screening of films, and film literacy and internet content creation programmes. Over 40 festivals, features and short films shot in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur are a testament to that fact. Because this parallel selection of the Festival de Cannes is demanding in selecting features and short films, and because of the way it connects with youths throughout the territory, the region has a special place in its heart for La Semaine de la Critique. The commendable work carried out by the team of La Semaine de la Critique deserves our complete attention, since it shines a light on new talented local filmmakers and contributes to our international fame. I am once again thrilled to have the region I preside take part in this year’s edition.
