26th L'ACID Selection

The ACID program at the Cannes International Film Festival was created in 1993. Films are chosen by fifteen or so filmmakers, members of the association. It screens nine feature films, fiction and documentary, chosen among hundreds of works from all around the world.

ACID filmmakers follow their love for a film and wish to give visibility to directors whose work is scarcely distributed, in order to facilitate a theatrical release.

The screenings, open to professionals and also to the public are all followed by Q&As with the films' crews and ACID filmmakers who supported the films.

The films shown in Cannes are then accompanied by ACID and its filmmakers in the various stages of the theatrical release (search for distributors / promotion / programming / organization of the Q&A's / audience research).

ACID is a film directors association that has been promoting the distribution of independent cinema in movie theatres since 1992. 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 film directors, members of ACID. Most of these films do not have a french distributor. The aim is to give visibility and public release to new talents. This program is shown at Les Arcades, Studio 13 and Alexandre III, movie theaters in Cannes.

The 26th edition of l'ACID in Cannes will run from Wednesday, May 9 to Friday, May 18, 2018.
