By Claire Simon, 2016, France – 121 min – Documentary in French with English subtitles
A completely engrossing and memorable documentary about college admissions at a unique institution. La Fémis, France’s premiere film academy, proposes a film education like no other—training direct from professionals in the industry instead of career educators, and almost a guarantee of entry into the production system after graduation. Gaining entrance into the school is another story, and that’s where the tragicomedy of LE CONCOURS is set. In this observational documentary, we go behind the scenes of the admissions process, revealing the triumphs and calamities of those who dream of getting into the world’s best film school.
LE CONCOURS screens as part of the AFS Cinema’s New French Cinema Week, a diverse program of narrative features, documentaries, animations and shorts by emerging Francophone artists. This series is presented in partnership with the Premiers Plans Festival d’Angers and supported by UniFrance, Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Austin Angers Creative, and the City of Angers (Austin’s sister city in the Loire Valley). Viewers interested in more than one film may purchase a Series Pass granting admission to all nine screenings.
Ciné-Club is a non-profit and non-commercial event proposed by Alliance Française, a self-financed, 501c(3) non-profit organization. It is made possible with support from Institut Français, Austin Film Society and YOU!
