At the moment of handing the César for the Best Short Film over during the 2nd Ceremony, in 1977, Jacques Tati said:
"Without short films you would not have had Chaplin, Keaton, Fellini, or René Clément, nobody, I am telling you, nobody!"
Are we aware that around the world, several Film Academies also recognize a short film each year within their national production?
The Académie des César wanted to promote the existence of these films in France and internationally with the Nuits en Or, a unique screening program of films awarded by the Film Academies around the world: César, Oscar, Bafta, Goya, Magritte ...
The best among the best! A universal journey, from the seat of your cinema theatre, around the diversity of the cultures of the world, to discover the great filmmakers of tomorrow.
Come and discover the works of these directors, as talented as promising, from all over the world!
Animation, documentary or fiction, the Nuits en Or short films take you in a few minutes from a funny or crazy universe to a dive into a breathtaking, committed or moving story.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Nuits en Or screenings could not take place in June and are postponed to September 2020.
In Paris, come to UGC Odéon cinema on Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 September for 2 exceptional evenings of free screenings!
Unfortunately, the Academy was forced to cancel the 2020 directors’ Tour.
