The 18th edition of the Paris Festival for Different and Experimental Cinemas presents six competitive programs and a series of peripheral events around the theme "Humor & Facéties".The surrealists used to find their daily inspiration in cinema, although not in the serious productions, but more in burlesque films or in extravagant serials. This explains the strong presence of the extraordinary and rip-roaring dimensions in avant-garde films. Many experimental filmmakers after them kept and nourished this taste for humour. For this year's edition, we invite our audience to discover this domain -the less austere of the vast world of creation- through different focus events.
