Les Lutins du Court-métrage 2013
About les Lutins
Since 1998, the Lutins du Court-métrage has been working to promote and disseminate French short films to a wider audience. More than 2,000 cinema professionals vote in a format inspired by the Césars (the Oscars in France) to determine the 25 best short films of the year, thereby bestowing upon them a mark of excellence. Supported by numerous partners, including the French Ministry of Culture, the French National Center of Cinematography (CNC), the mayor’s office of Paris, and the French National Theater of Chaillot, the Lutins of the short film participate in the discovery of young directors, actors and actresses who will be making the films of tomorrow. The Lutins have participated in the emergence of such filmmakers as François Ozon, and actors such as Jérémie Rénier, Ludivine Sagnier, Sulvie Testud and more.
Today, the Lutins strive to make young talents known in France and worldwide through a cinematic tour de France, so to speak, during which the best short films of the year are shown in cinemas and overseas spaces.
