The Preview Screenings for the North East France film exhibitors

Entrevues selects seven movies for a preview screening organized for the film exhibitors of the five regions in North East France, thus contributing to the dissemination of these films.
Each movie is presented by its director and distributor. Discussions concerning promotion of challenging arthouse films follow the screenings.


The Franche-Comté regional meetings on image education

Organized by the Pole Image de Franche Comté.


The Grand Est workshop

For many years, the film project officers of the five regions in North East France have been meeting during the Entrevues festival in order to launch discussions and develop joint projects.


[Films en cours] post-production support

Since 2009, Entrevues offers an award to support cinematic post-production. First, second, and third international feature films that are near the end of the editing process are eligible for [Films en cours]. Every year, five projects are selected and examined by a professional jury. The laureate can benefit from services that will help them finish their film under the best available technical conditions.
