Daily news: Saturday 14 avril

Welcome to our "Daily news" Festival mailing. Here are a few must-see must-do suggestions, among the 174 films and the numerous Industry activities for audiovisual professionals, including many conferences that are also open to the public. Here are our top picks for Saturday 14 April. Happy exploring!


, Stéphanie Chuat, Véronique Reymond – World premiere

They are divorced, widowed or single, having already lived one or several lives, yet having the energy to live others. Even if they have sometimes the feeling, since men have deserted their emotional landscape, that they have become transparent. Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond have taken the time to listen to and film these women, rarely shown in cinema.
