English Version

ACID is a film directors association that has been promoting the diffusion of independent films in movie theatres and encouraging debates between authors and the audience for 23 years. The strength of ACID is its founding principle : the support brought by filmmakers to other filmmakers, French or foreign.

WHAT IS ACID ?

ACID Program in the Cannes Film Festival

The ACID programm at the Cannes International Film Festival was created in 1993. Films are chosen by fifteen or so filmmakers, members of ACID, formerly programmed in Cannes or whose films were supported during the year. It screens nine feature films, fiction and documentary, chosen among hundreds of works from all around the world.
ACID filmmakers follow their love for a film and wish to give visibility to directors whose work is scarcely distributed, in order to facilitate a theatrical release.
Among authors discovered in ACID Cannes are Lucas Belvaux, Sébastien Betbeder, Serge Bozon, Djinn Carrénard, Vincent Dieutre, Rachid Djaïdani, Alain Gomis, Arnaud et Jean-Marie Larrieu, Hicham Lasri, Ursula Meier, Avi Mograbi, Yolande Moreau et Gilles Porte, Ioanis Nuguet, Nicolás Pereda, Pierre Schoeller, Claire Simon, Justine Triet…

ACID’s Cannes programme is a long-awaited meeting for distributors, film programmers and international festivals. It allows them to see films and for ACID to rely on the programmers’ feedback to prepare the releases.
The screenings, in the presence of ACID filmmakers and the films’ crews, are also open to the public and to high school students of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region.
The films shown in Cannes are then accompanied by ACID and its filmmakers in the various stages of the theatrical release (search for distributors / promotion / programming / organization of the Q&A’s / audience research).
ACID Cannes 2015 programme rerun will take place on September 25th-27th at the Louxor in Paris, from october 2nd to 4th at the Comoedia in Lyon and in over fifteen venues in the Ile-de-France region in september-october.
