They are "ACID"
In Cannes, it is not only the rise of the steps. Real hub of world cinema, the festival also hosts a lot of parallel sections that showcase the 7e Art of the future … Which, led by an association of independent filmmakers known as the funny acronym ACID.
Special features? First, they are the ones who fully (and collectively) determine the programming.
Above all, the programming committee is composed in part by the directors supported during the previous edition.
Yolande Moreau, Lucas Belvaux, Robert Guédiguian, Laurent Cantet, Cédric Klapisch and Costa Gavras went through ACID.
