Nicolas Martin is a producer, and hosts the Scientific Method podcast on France Culture. He is also an author, screenwriter and filmmaker. Simon Riaux is a film critic, and works namely with the online magazine, Écran large, the program, Le Cercle, on Canal +, and the podcast, Pardon le cinéma.
Simon Riaux and Nicolas Martin are both members of the official jury of the 2022 Short Film Competition.
Simon Riaux and Nicolas Martin have been working closely together for the past several years on a number of projects involving film and genre series, but some cardinal questions continue to haunt them: At a time when cinema’s imagination is overshadowed by Hollywood imagery, what needs to happen for another imaginary to take root? How may the dawning of a European industry see the day, and why are people scared stiff of cult film in France? By taking a closer look at their undertakings and bilateral research, both authors attempt to penetrate the recesses vital to the unfolding of an imaginary world fit (…or unfit) for all.
