6th Paris Cinema International Film Festival

This is a fest that I really wish I could attend only because it is in Paris! But then, it will be hard to be in Paris and go indoors instead of enjoying the outstandingly beautiful outdoors… lol! Anyway, the fest will run from July 1st to 12th and here are the films in competition.

Adhen (Dernier Maquis) Rabah Ameur-Zaimeche, France and Algeria, 2008
Dorothy, Agnès Merlet, France and UK, 2007 (with Carice Van Houten!)
Kabei (Kabei – Our Mother), Yoji Yamada, Japan, 2007
Lake Tahoe, Fernando Eimbcke, Mexico, 2008
Mange, ceci est mon corps (Eat, for This is My Body), Michelange Quay, France and Haiti, 2007
Tejut – Ambient Movie (Milky Way – Ambient Movie), Benedek Fliegauf, Hungary and Germany (Very interesting Experimental film)
Tribu, Jim Libiran, Phillippines, 2007
Zuo You (In Love We Trust), Wang Xiaoshuai, China, 2008

There will be a special tribute to Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki; the 'Country of Honour' is Philippines and some interesting Professional Workshops and meetings. To check the fest site go here. If you read French I suggest you check the French version of the site that has more information about the event. Soon there will be online videos available.
