Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Having been forced to improvise and adapt last year on account of the eruption of the health crisis, the Parisian team behind the Cinéma du Réel International Documentary Film Festival, steered by Catherine Bizern, has planned meticulously for this year’s 43rd edition, which has been renamed CanalRéel and will be accessible live, online, from 12 to 21 March via the festival’s website (3 Euros per person for films, with capacity for 400 people per seance). The event is due to be pre-opened by an invitations-only Special Screening of the film which triumphed within the Berlinale’s Encounters competition: We [+leggi anche:

by Switzerland’s Milo Rau (unveiled during Venice’s Giornate degli Autori) and the French-Moroccan co-production Ziyara by Simone Bitton (selected for the IDFA). And that’s without forgetting the 13 films jostling in the A First Window selection, the full retrospective of Pierre Créton’s works, the various Filmmakers in Their Garden sessions (dedicated to Joaquim Pinto, Jonas Mekas, Hilal Baydarov, Margaret Tait, Robert Huot, Rose Lowder and Sophie Roger) and the traditional Popular Front(s) line-up, which, this year, revolves around our role as citizens.

Meanwhile, from 16 to 19 March, the professional ParisDOC sidebar will host several online round tables (notably on the topic of new actors and funding, not to mention online distribution), but it will first and foremost shine a light on the 8th edition of the work-in-progress event and its nine selected feature films. Among them, we can mention Brazza by French director Antoine Boutet, Uprising by his compatriot Laurie Lassalle, Of Dogs and Dogs (working title) by Belgium’s Laurent Van Lancker and A Thousand Fires by Saeed Taji Farouky (produced by France, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Palestine), but also three titles presented by three European festivals invited to the event by Cinéma du Réel: The Moment of Transition by Italy’s Chiara Marotta (chosen by the Turin Film Festival and the Piemonte Doc Film Fund), Kapr Code by the Czech Republic’s Lucie Králová (selected by the Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival and the Czech Film Fund) and Water Has No Borders by Georgia’s Maradia Tsaava (in collaboration with CinéDOC-Tbilisi and the Georgian National Film Center).
