Our team has been enjoying the spring sunshine and preparing for the next edition of ÉCU. Couple of really exciting news here: firstly, the new dates for our XI edition have been announced – mark your calendars for April 8-9-10, 2016 for the coolest indie fun ever. Secondly, ÉCU is now opened for submissions, so all independent filmmakers, send in your works now, you do not want to miss out on the chance to screen your work before a global audience at the most significant indie film event in Europe. Be sure to submit early!
ÉCU is always on the road and our search for the greatest independent films never ends. From May 17th – 24th ÉCU was hunting the emerging talent at the Cannes Film Festival. From early in the morning in the Palais to very late at night in the after-parties, we quickly learned that networking never ends! Make sure you check out our Cannes section of the website to see what our team was up to.
Always on the go, ÉCU is screening two films from its 2015 Official Selection at Cabriolet Film Festival in Lebanon. BENEATH WATER by Charlie Manton and LAST WILL: IDYLL by Alice von Gwinner will be competing for the prestigious film awards in Beirut City over the weekend of May 29th – 31st. Also we are happy to be part of Clare Valley Film Festival’s special educational project taking place on May 30th, where HUMAN by Brigitte Drodtoff, another Official Selection film from our 2015 edition will be screened. There are many other interesting stops planned, so keep checking our website for all the updates.
Here at the office we continue to organize ÉCU 2016 as we promote all of the films screened in the latest festival, looking forward to celebrating 11 years of incredible indie work. We hope you’re excited as we are for what the next month has in store!
Stay cool. Stay indie!
