TRAVEL GRANT

Venues that would like to organize a master class with the director/actor of one of the films shown can apply for a travel grant to fly the artist to the US. Please send us an email with your request and be as detailed as possible about your proposed master class, the venue, the number of students expected, the moderators of the discussion and explain why it’s important for the screening to have the artist attend.

PROGRAM PARTNERS

ACID (Association for Independent Cinema and its Distribution) is a French association of film directors which has been promoting since 1992 the distribution of independent films and encouraging debates between authors and audiences. The strength of ACID lies in its founding principle : the support given by filmmakers to other filmmakers, french or international. ACID also has its own parallel section at the Cannes Film Festival since 1993 where 9 feature films are screened. Every year ACID supports between 20 and 30 feature films.
