Welcome to the micro-planet of the Très Courts!

You might have noticed our new homepage: the seventeenth poster of the Très Court International Film Festival has been released! Made by Slim, it uses panoramic shots techniques in order to turn a scenery into a micro-planet: the planet of the Très Courts! Let's get the opportunity to remind you some important dates: you can send your very shorts ((less than three-minutes!) films until February 15th, and the festival will take place from 5th to 14th of June 2015!

The One Dollar Project

One Dollar is a participatory web documentary taking root in Cambodia by the Bophana Center, founded by award-winning filmmaker Rithy Panh. It is now an international project dedicated to individuals living below the poverty line in the world. One Dollar gives voice to the ones who often suffer from a lack of "speaking space". A young generation passionate about new media and audiovisual creation thus proves that you can move from impersonal numbers to personal stories, through "very short" video portraits. To know more about it, see films or submit your video portrait, please follow the link until December 31, 2014.

Ministère du droit des femmes

The New York Times goes to Very Short

new york times hommage making a scene adèle exarchopoulos

Produced by the New York Times, Making a Scene is a tribute to eleven artists who marked the year 2013.

The project was directed by Janusz Kaminski, Steven Spielberg's Chief Operator and includes Adele Exarchopoulos, Robert Redford, Forest Whitaker, Bradley Cooper, Oprah Winfrey and many others.

Every Très Court (less than 90 seconds each) is a wink to the movie in which the actor (or actress!) get noticed. This is clearly the quality of this project: a single word, a single body movement is enough to show us the film in question.

We can regret a simplistic scenario in this very short form, but the attention given to aesthetics, including costumes, makeup, music and decorations makes us salute the originality of the performance.

All Making A Scene's videos are available on the New York Times's Website
