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.
