The international short film festival in Clermont Ferrand

has been running since 1982. It takes place every year in February for one week. I participate every year either as a volunteer or as a spectator. In 2022, 152 films were in competition and 100,000 visitors attended with the help of about 300 volunteers. Each year there is a different theme and this year it was Spain and it was its 40th anniversary. Prizes are awarded at the end of the screenings. Conferences and concerts take place as well as debates with the directors in which I participate. A wonderful atmosphere is created around this festival. During one week, the city of Clermont-Ferrand is in full effervescence.
