Every year since 2004, Festimaj, the international festival of student films, the largest cinema in the world, offers a journey across five continents to see films made by and with young people aged between 4 and 30 years old. This year it will be held from May 27th to June 27th. Festimaj was created by Gilles Lemounaud, director and artistic director of @rtiste production audiovisuelle and Anne-Claude Lumet, writer and director.
Screenings will be held wherever on the five continents submissions have come from, while the key moments (the opening and closing, cinema workshops, screenings of the films in competition and special programmes) will be organised in France: the Pays de Pouzauges (Vendée) and where the festival originated, Lyon-Meyzieu in the Rhône.
Festimaj is open to young film-makers, film teachers, any contributor to film-making. The deadline to register films is April 20th, the deadline for the films to be received is April 30th .
Organizations of any nationality – cinemas, schools, French or foreign institutes, film clubs or associations – can organize a ready-made festival locally by registering before April 30th. You’ll become a co-organizer of Festimaj and can show Festimaj films in competition (either in French or English) in your town.
