If you’re in Paris this upcoming weekend, you might want to check out Écu: The European Independent Film Festival, taking place at la Bibliothèque Nationale de France on March 14-16, 2008. Showcasing filmmakers in eleven different categories, the festival aims to promote independent film from not only Europe but the whole world.
The coolest thing about the festival is that it is free, which helps to reduce barriers between independent film makers and their audiences. You do however have to reserve a seat in advance.
With over 100 films to choose from, you might have a hard time making a decision on which one to go see. Thankfully you can watch trailers to all of the films on Écu Interactive — also helpful if you’re not in Paris but want a little taste of what’s going on.
