International Mediterranean Film Festival of Montpellier

 19 --> 27 October 2018



The young boy’s feet, pushed up against the screen wall. The women’s approving gaze and behind, an image of human society, all bond the child to his common destiny. The sea is present too, in the form of a e46109 triangle. 

A moment spent in the sun. A moment of connection, like a festival. 

Flippant, with feet against the wall. Exchanging glances. A beckoning smile. A moment spent just being alive, and on the edge. On the quay of life. 

This poster is an ode to the welcome irreverence of youth. Healthy childhood disrespect, primal creative energy, the ability to be amazed by life. 

Join us in Montpellier for the 39th edition of Cinemed, Mediterranean Film Festival from the 20th of October until the 28h of October.
