Opening night and closing night, sneak previews and French premieres of films acclaimed in the biggest international festivals: every day, these special events bring together viewers and filmmakers and offer an exclusive chance to explore the most talked-about films of the moment.

These special events are also an opportunity to indulge in other experiences, with hearing sessions showcasing documentary and fiction radio pieces in collaboration with France Culture, and inclusive screenings for people with disabilities designed to tackle the question of self-image and how it can be reclaimed. Over the course of the festival, as viewers go from one screening to the next, these events are also a chance to slip into a different pace: by seeing Amos Gitaï’s House trilogy in three sittings or in one afternoon, in a nod to the same-titled play recently created by Gitaï at the Théâtre de la Colline; by discovering Mehran Tamadon’s two latest films back-to-back to better grasp their full extent; and by joining in the three-part celebration of the work of Jean-Louis Comolli—in memory of the man, of the thinker, and of the filmmaker.
