The Programme

Nearly 120 films, carefully selected across Europe by our artistic director Frédéric Boyer, are offered for this eighth edition!

Discover the programme

Discover the films in the Official Competition, the Focus, the School Program, our new sections called Playtime and Hauteur and the Special Screenings (music films, films that give chills and mountain films).

Official Competition

10 films are competing for the Crystal Arrow and will be awarded by the festival’s jury. 

"Nouvelles Femmes de Cinéma"  

This year, at les Arcs, we are celebrating the new generation of European women filmmakers.
This idea stems from a will: to highlight the talent of "Nouvelles Femmes de Cinéma". 



The Playtime selection is an exploration of the best of what European entertainment cinema has to offer. Action movies, road movie, thrillers and comedy ... genres that are poorly represented at festivals, and which we believe, deserve a real spotlight.


Hauteur: auteur cinema at its best! A selection that reflects the diversity and dynamics of European creativity.

Youth screenings

A selection of films will be presented to the school of Bourg-Saint-Maurice, from kindergarten to high school, to enable pupils to discover original films and introduce them to the fun of being a movie buff.

Music films

The festival presents a selection of music films, to make the link between music and cinema, two inseparable and complementary arts.

Snow Frayeurs

The evening around 22 PM, the station will tremble. Some gems of European genre cinema will come cover with blood the white screens of les Arcs. Be careful not to meet the yeti when you return to your cottage in the dark!
