First novelty, the festival Free greetings, co-organized by the Yves-Kernanec Institute, the Pont des Arts and the city of Marcq, returns in a tight format, from Wednesday 27 to Saturday 30 April. As usual, the films in competition were selected by the students in the film section. This year’s theme is ” Misleading appearances “.
