Only Cannes is more important...
Every winter, Clermont-Ferrand hosts “the second most important film festival in France” (after the well-known event in Cannes). It's February, so it's time for the 30th edition of the International Short Film Festival, showcasing works from filmmakers around the world. This year, there are thematic programs showing the state of the art of short film in Switzerland, films that celebrate "gastronomy and the pleasure of being at the table," and a particular celebration of the roles actors play in short films.
Last year, I had the pleasure of interviewing Eric Wojcik, one of the founding directors of the festival. Read more about this exceptional event in my article on FranceToday.com , one of the best online sources for information about travel and culture in France.
