Festivals Attended As A Guest

This festival is an abomination. The website is well done, it’s taking place during the prestigious Cannes film festival (with no link at all, of course) but the screening conditions are awful, with a lot of sound distortion and freeze frame. What is the sense to ask you for an HD copy of your work if it’s to show it in such a poor resolution ? Seeing your work like this is not a reward but a nightmare, the guy in charge of the festival is an amateur and a saboteur with absolutely no sense of respect for the director and the movies selected. Directors have travelled from all over the world (Japan, China, Germany, Scotland, Portugal, Australia, Belgium…) and are all the more disappointed. I ‘m very surprised to see how this festival could be supported by the city hall of Cannes and I’ll ask them for further explanation about how they can associate their image with this shame. Newcomers run away !

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 more attractive
