The Festival des 3 Continents has maintained the International Competition this year with 8 films not yet screened in France, Europe or elsewhere in the world.
On the programme, 5 fiction and 3 documentary films will be submitted to the appreciation of a jury of professionals (responsible for awarding the Montgolfière d’or et Montgolfière d’argent prizes) and that of the Youth Jury (Young Jury Award).
As soon as the situation allows, the films of the competition will be shown in the Nantes cinemas. Following these showings and audience votes, the RFI-Wik Prize of the Public will be awarded.
The Festival des 3 Continents will offer professionals the opportunity to discover a selection of films shown in Special Screenings, as a complement to the films of the International Competition. In addition to films not screened in France, the festival will also welcome several films from the Cannes Classics 2020 Selection. By giving visibility to works whose discovery has been impeded by the context of the pandemic, the festival team wishes to show their attachment to the authors and also their support to producers and distributors.
The films of the International Competition and of the Special Screenings, which give their consent, will be accessible to professionals and the press in the video library of the Festival on Festival Scope Pro (https://pro.festivalscope.com/festival/show/festival-des-3-continents/2020) from November 20 to December 6 2020.
The Festival des 3 Continents will be hosting online its 20th Nantes workshop devoted to acquiring tools for international coproduction. The projects of the six two-person teams (producer/filmmaker) selected for the 2020 workshop will benefit from the experience, training and support of a group of experts in the development of the construction of their full-length film. The participants in the 2020 workshop come Azerbaidjan, Brazil, Palestine-Jordan, Thailand, Uganda and Zimbabwe. This edition preceeds the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Produire au Sud in 2021, a labeled year which will bring together the six other countries where it is at present established (India, Israel, Morocco, South Africa, Taiwan and Thailand).
