The Festival venues
An exceptional place in the midst of the Alps...
The festival didn't choose Les Arcs randomly. This winter sports resort offers an incomparable overview of the most beautiful peaks of Savoie and of the Mont Blanc.
The "Paradiski" domain (Les Arcs, La Plagne, Peisey-Vallandry) is one of the most beautiful skiable domains in the world, offering 425 km of skiable slopes, 3 slalom stadiums and 3 installations for new board sports (snowpark, boardercross, half-pipe...). The access to the slopes is guaranteed during the whole winter season by a perfected artificial snow system.
The resort offers 5 exceptional welcome points at different altitudes and can accommodate up to 30 000 people.
Films at every altitude
