ACID Programme in Cannes

Acid is a film directors association that has been promoting the diffusion of independent cinema in movie theatres for 20 years. The founding principle : the support brought by filmmakers to other filmmakers, French or foreign. Every year, ACID presents 9 films in Cannes during the festival. Films are chosen by fifteen ACID film directors. Most of these films do not have a french distributor. The aim is to give visibility and public release to new talents. ACID's support does not stop with the presentation in Cannes. The chosen directors then become members of the association. After Cannes, ACID presents the films to 40 festivals in France and abroad. The ACID Cannes programme is then shown in Paris, in 30 movie theaters in the Parisian area, in region, and internationally. 
ACID also helps the director find a distributor in France, and when one is found, works on the release (promotion / programming / Q&A’s / audience research).  ACID then promotes the film among 200 independant movie theaters. All year long, ACID also organizes Q&As, readings, concerts, in movie theaters and international festivals, in presence either of the film director, the screenplay writer, actors, or the music composer.  ACID is also : partnerships with schools, universities, associations and an audience network throughout the country.
