Poster of the 20th edition

Sophie Labruyere

Clément Sautet

The point of very short films is that you can find big productions as well as small films made with a few bits and bobs… Sophie Labruyere, a director herself and a reporter of images, has chosen to turn the spotlight on these home made films on the poster she made for the 20th edition of Très Court. She knows the festival quite well: 

I have got it on with Très Court for a few years, on the side of the selection team, so when asked if I wanted to make the poster obviously I was very pleased to say "yes!"

I am a director, I like telling stories, arranging images, making them with paper bits and camera bots. In the process of creating the poster of this 20th edition, I involved Clément Sautet, a friend who is also a director and a photograph, in the adventure. I invite you to discover and follow his work here:

Cofounder of Starfix magazine, producer and director Nicolas Boukhrief is a cinema enthusiast.
He has been working with Mathieu Kassovitz, Christophe Gans, Gaspar Noé, and he directs his own films.
Le Plaisir (et ses petits tracas) came out in 1997, then Cash Truck in 2003, starring Jean Dujardin and Albert Dupontel.
Always at ease with dark crime films, he directed Cortex in 2008 and Gardiens de l'ordre in 2009.
In 2015, his film Made in France dealing with young outcasts' radicalization, was shot just before the attacks in Paris and caused a sensation by anticipating the facts.
His latest film, La confession, came out in March 2017 starring Marine Vacth et Romain Duris.

As the president of the jury of this 19th edition, there is no doubt that Nicolas Boukhrief will take a wise look at the new generations of directors.
