Moving mountains: a thematic section to commit in tomorrow’s society
In the context of the health, economic and societal crisis we are going through, we have chosen this year to devote the Focus to a theme : that of commitment.
This programme of more than 10 films entitled "Moving Mountains" has been designed to enable us to reflect on current and future changes in society, through the prism of good ideas to be shared and the actions that can result from them, using cinema as a tool for reflection, an open window on Europe and the challenges of today and tomorrow.
