This year, La Collection, Créations originales offers five short film mysteries. It’s no small task to take yet another look at this fascinating world and add something new and quirky.
Talented young filmmakers take a shot at this tried-and-true genre, offering fresh, contemporary tales, short works of no more than twenty minutes each, inspired by true events. Among the things they take a look at are reunion, a private detective’s investigation, identity theft, gruesome happenings and small-time dealers.
These five short films were developed as part of Sofilm de genre residencies. In partnership with the CNC, Sacem, Ciclic, the Région Nouvelle-Aquitaineand the department of Lot-et-Garonne, the goal of the residencies is to bring genre films up to date in France by offering innovative ways of writing that leave a lot of space in particular for collaborative writing, literature and music.
