THIS IS NOT A FESTIVAL BUT A PRIMARY SCHOOL PROJECT!!! Even a person with no experience but some goodwill can do better. 1/ Concerning the projection: a/screen: consider a TV of 32' inches: same size (I'll bring magnnifying glassess next time for subtitles). Quality VHS (but several copies sent in HD: curious) b/ music: saturation when playing music, even quiet (bring your ball earplug do not become deaf) c/ Surprise guest: google chrome opening several times in the screen while showing movies and no excuse from staff (true story) 2/ Organization: a/ no communication, leading logically to an empty room (max. people in the same time: 10: easy & fast to count) b/ guy in charge arrived late several times with no excuse c/ "jury" left the projection room several times: that's what I call respect! d/ guy in charge did not do anything to present and link artists, even if we were only few people Conclusion: don't waste your time. Thanks God, it was a sunny week and we enjoyed the beach

Open Comments on Francesco's Review
Dear friends and critics. We recognize that this year the projection room of the Hotel Eden was not operational at the quality of sound and image. We searched with the staff of the hotel that was wrong and finally we realize that a cable connectivity was a flaw ... We are suing the hotel who is responsible for this, the AVIFF renting an auditorium in working order and the hotel to maintain it. We apologized repeatedly during sessions and looked again the problem that we did finally discover that at the end of the festival.
As director of this festival I accept the blame for this criticism and once again I want to say that we are sorry that this situation has nothing to do with any disrespect for artists / authors.
In our defense I should say that:
We have always been clear in our communication and have no connection with the Cannes Film Festival which is an old lady of 67 years and has no interest ( yet ) in our actions.
We do our best to develop young but independent festival in a difficult period for the city of Cannes belongs to the entire Cannes Film Festival and places are expensive and rare.
We have an interest that is to promote arthouse films and develop this share of video art on the market for contemporary art during the film festival
Finally, we are not a film festival with deep pockets and are working our best to make this enjoyable for all adventure. Thus we are getting better every year.
Also regarding the personal attacks I read your comments, I do not answer that if I see the trace of low regard you pay to people in general.
This AVIFF Cannes festival is a meeting place and discoveries. Let us preserve the meaning and accept some imperfections that make it even
