Les Arcs Film Festival shows its will to promote music for the cinema
The Music Village has become an unmissable event between European music and film industries. 

The Music Village was conceived as a space for informal encounters around the Coproduction Village, highlight of the Festival where every year, selected project holders present about twenty feature film projects looking for European coproducers and 14 feature films in post-production. 

Thus, publishers, musical supervisors, composers, and labels come to meet producers, directors and distributors attending Les Arcs Film Festival. 

Enjoy this week in Les Arcs to organize special meetings among 1000 professionals (producers, directors, distributors, broadcasters, ...) and 20 000 spectators expected. 


The program of the next edition is not yet available.

Programme 2018

Every year, the festival puts music in the limelight with exceptional new talents concerts during the opening and closing nights (bands such as La Femme, Grand Corps Malade, The Pirouettes, JAIN, Isaac Delusion, Lily Wood and the Pricks participated). Appointments are planned between a ski slope, a glass of hot wine and one of the many films of the programme so that these two industries can meet in the exceptional setting of Arc 1950: professional conferences, networking, Masterclass of composers, etc.

From his first EP in 2016, Adam Naas has imposed his ruggedly beautiful soul man’s voice. Since then, this young French man has confirmed on stage the power of his singing, capable of setting everyone’s senses on fire, making the thickest skins tremble.

Merryn Jeann is a supple and sophisticated vocalist and songwriter with the lyrical powers of a precise and sensitive poet. At times soft - like a lover gently whispering into your ear, and at other times cinematic – Merryn’s music is fragile, vividly visual and achingly honest.

Sunday December 16th - 17PM - Chalet Perché, Arc 1950

Ciné concert by Grandbrothers

In front of the screen of La Scène where we will screen a programme of lms especially chosen for the 10th year of the Festival, we will be honoured to welcome the two musicians from Grandbrothers who will play live the soundtracks they will have imagined.


At the borders between classical and electronic music, Grandbrothers enchants with their melodies with repetitive loops. From Steve Reich, one of the pioneers of minimalism, to the new delicate worlds discovered by Nils Frahm, the German duet plays with ease, with every partition keeping a great delicacy and sensitivity.

The film programme : 

L'Ascension du Mont-Blanc (1907)

L’Ascension du Mont Blanc is the testimony of the ascent, at the beginning of the century, of the highest european summit. A documentary with extraordinary images, that follows an alpinists' crew, who are very different from today’s alpinists. If climbing is not an exploit anymore, the mountain always remains a danger.

Emak Bakia (Man Ray, 1926)

Emak Bakia is a surrealistic short film, a film-poem shot in Bidart where one finds Kiki de Montparnasse, the director's partner and model, Pablo Picasso’s sculptures and all the extravagant and quirky dada movement.

Ballet Mécanique (Dudley Murphy and Fernand Léger, 1924)

First film without a real script, Ballet Mécanique is the result of the composition Mechanisms from the composer George Antheil, who trusted the operator Dudley Murphy and the painter Fernand Léger with the direction.The result is an experimental post-cubic dadaist film considered as one of the masterpieces of the experimental cinema. A pure visual experience.

Between disco, electro and afro-funk, lead by a strong part of impro, the two members of Macadam Crocodile give an unstoppable groove, reconnecting with the golden age of uninhibited dancefloors.

Sunday December 16 - From 10PM, Les Belles Pintes, Arc 1950

With his first album, Un (2017), Malik Djoudi made a remarked entrance in the French Pop, imposing a French touch that belongs to him only: elegant and vibrant, impressive and fragile. A romantic dandy, not too confident, who conveys Christophe, Sébastien Tellier and William Sheller;  a voice floating in the air just near Connan Mockasin's, a melodic intensity…and words in French that he plays with, with candor and an enchanting pop electro vibe.

Friday December 21 - Closing party - From 22:30PM - Châlet de Luigi 


Two girls’ pitfall. Watch out for the sound of worship, of multitude, of aberration: watch out for the girls of Piège à garçon.
