The 30th edition of the Festival Tous Courts is fast approaching...an edition we hope to share with you! The 30th Tous Courts Festival, with nearly 200 short films from the four corners of the world, coming from young European and international filmmakers, will reflect the struggle that has animated it all these years: to support the cinema, viscerally, to be demanding, to show perseverance, to defend convictions and utopias. This theme of Combat, which runs through the programming of this anniversary edition, symbolizes 30 years of research and discoveries, 30 years at the heart of free cinema, a cinema that makes sense in the face of the consensual audiovisual tidal wave. A 30th festival to look at the road that is opening up to us, towards the unknown, towards creation, towards the films that remain to be made, to be found, to be shown. As scouts, as bearers of witnesses. And keep an open mind, carefree, enthusiastic, as on the first day, as on the first festival.
At 30 years... of the festival, you have to look in the rear-view mirror to appreciate how far we've come: the dozens of young directors who have grown up, the hundreds of passionate organizers, the thousands of films shown, the hundreds of thousands of spectators, and in the end, the feeling of having lived a History of Cinema for three decades in Aix, dear to the most illustrious professionals of the profession. The latter in his film JLG/JLG answered the question: "Where do you live? - In language. And I can't keep quiet. "This is the state of mind that has animated us all these years. To support this language that is cinema, viscerally. To be demanding, to persevere, to defend our convictions, our utopias.
