Well-known French actress Alice Taglioni will preside over this year's festival. The awards ceremony is scheduled for 6 July.
Most films are screened in the Jean-Pierre Jeunet cinema in La Foa, however others can be seen in Noumea cinemas, at the Tjibaou Cultural Centre or in tribal villages.
It is certainly one of the most improbable festivals in France. This small village in the heart of New Caledonia is hosting a big name in cinema around a selection of art house films. Far from the glitz and celebrity side of other festivals, this festival has as definite assets the hospitality and simplicity. Here, the films are at the heart of the festival and not the celebrities.
