The 22nd Marseille International Film Festival is going on from 6 to 11 July. The International, French and First Film Competition will present forty films, of all formats, diverse styles, from all over the world, documentaries and fictions films, for the most part in their world or international  premiere.
What is at stake is daring to defend the cinema that is being  made today, a cinema that is both demanding and vital.
The complete programme is on the website

LES BARBARES is the latest short movie by French director Jean-Gabriel Périot, screening now in various festivals around the world.

If politics were to come back, it could only be from its savage and disreputable fringe. Then, a muffled rumor shall arise whence that roar is heard: “We are scum! We are barbarian!” (Alain Brossat)
