Festival Scope presents the 2020 Critics' Week short films online

The 59th edition of Cannes' Critics' Week could not be held as scheduled in May due to the global sanitary crisis. Honouring its commitment, the parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival nevertheless continues to shine a light on emerging talents in order to support filmmakers and the film industry.
To address this unprecedented situation, the Critics' Week and Festival Scope kick off a tailored-made support programme for the films that artistic director Charles Tesson and his selection committees chose to actively support. Accordingly, 10 short films have received the “2020 Semaine de la Critique label” and are accessible online now here, for free, from today to 25 October.
