Last year, over 800 spectators were able to preview films thanks to the festival. All you need to do to see a film is to pick up your invitation for two from the Courchevel Tourisme offices.
For the producers, this provides the opportunity to test their film before its official release.
This year the programme includes: "Ensemble c’est tout" (Hunting and Gathering) by Claude Berry with Guillaume Canet and Audrey Tautou, "The Namesake" (Un nom pour un autre) by Mira Nair, "Goodbye Bafana" by Bille August and finally "Le prix à payer" by Alexandra Leclère with Christian Clavier and Nathalie Baye.
