EN COMPÉTITION POUR LES PRIX DU JURY
This event contains content that may not be suitable for young viewers. Discretion advised.
Make yourselves comfortable, and let the screen do the restlessness.
All masked out and nowhere to go, you will be able to awaken the bedlam and bad blood dormant in you. As you traverse mystical expanses dreamt up by the imagination, realities of both the copacetic and callous kind await you. Whether hand-drawn or pixelated, these story "lines" will be sending you to zèle and back.
Get your fill-o-films, festivalgoers. The demonted dance of Court Métrange has begun!
p.s. Please give the lady back her necklace.
