The ACID program in Cannes

The ACID programme at the Cannes International Film Festival was created in 1993. Films are chosen by fifteen or so filmmakers, members of the association. It screens feature films, fiction and documentary, chosen among hundreds of works from all around the world.

ACID filmmakers follow their love for a film and wish to give visibility to directors whose work is scarcely distributed, in order to facilitate a theatrical release.

The screenings, open to professionals and to the public, are all followed by Q&As with the films’ crews and ACID filmmakers.

The films shown in Cannes are then accompanied by ACID and its filmmakers in the various stages of the theatrical release (search for distributors / promotion / programming / organization of the Q&A’s / audience research...)

ACID Cannes 2017 programme reruns will take place on September 15th-17th at the Louxor in Paris, on september 22nd-24th at the Comœdia in Lyon, in over fifteen venues in the Île-de-France region and abroad.

Among authors whose first features were programmed in ACID Cannes are : Lucas Belvaux, Kaouther Ben Hania, Serge Bozon, Djinn Carrénard, Vincent Dieutre, Rachid Djaïdani, Benoit Forgeard, Alain Gomis, Emmanuel Gras, Arnaud et Jean-Marie Larrieu, Hicham Lasri, Ursula Meier, Avi Mograbi, Yolande Moreau et Gilles Porte, Nathan Nicholovitch, Ioanis Nuguet, Nicolás Pereda, Pierre Schoeller, Claire Simon, Justine Triet...
