It's also worth noting that Les Versants by Guillaume Renusson won both screenplay reading awards. Written by his future director with Clement Peny, the story focuses on a man named Samuel who isolates himself in the Italian mountains following the death of his wife. The place is used by migrants to cross the French border, but Samuel remains indifferent to the situation, a recluse. However, one night he meets Chehreh. She has fled Afghanistan and must find her husband on the other side of the border... The script was read by Loïc Corbery in Angers and production is being handled by Les Films Velvet.
