ARTE: medium-length films

  • Wednesday 01.05 – 19:30 – Studio 1 (Flagey)

The famous TV channel, as a partner of the BSFF since 2022, will bring freshness to the festival by offering a new kind of programme to the BSFF: medium-length films.

ARTE is always looking for new formats and aims at presenting the work of young talents who are pioneers in new trends. Medium-length films are the continuity and the logical development of ARTE’s work with the short film and their programme called Court-Circuit.

With touching and dazzling fiction films, ARTE will take you off the beaten track this year with films about provoking and risky themes.
