After a first edition which closed the year of the Cinema of the City of Nice, and which found, from its creation, an extremely important success both at the level of the profession, the press and of course, the public, we have We wanted, despite the very difficult situation, to embark on a second edition which marks both a broadening of the themes and the sources. The year 2020 was marked above all by the Covid-19, which severely disrupted all world activity including culture and all film activity, and by causing the cancellation of many festivals. We have held firm and will present on the same dates as in 2019 this edition whose jury will be chaired by Nicolas Bedos, surrounded by artists that we particularly love, and which will allow us to see 24 films during 32 screenings and Masterclasses, readings of novels adaptable to cinema, meetings and debates. We are expecting many of you to win this bet together.
