OFF Encounters

The Off-Courts festival also wants to allow everyone to enjoy different points of view and concrete experiences. Because life is also made of physical encounters, and a festival is a festive moment of this life, we cannot imagine Off-Courts without moments spent with artisans of the cinema.

And, if they are often thought in the direction of the young students present and seeking knowledge and experiences, these moments of privileged exchanges are of course open to all… It is never too late to learn.

Meeting with Eric Gravel

Village Off

It is the atypical path of a filmmaker who went directly from short films in Kino labs to feature films that we wish to discover by inviting Eric Gravel. Atypical also because this Quebecer has often made his kino films with French people or even in France before coming to settle here to make his two feature films. No doubt, Eric is a man that borders, whether physical or technological, do not concern.
