Yes, the JCC will take place despite the exceptional times we are experiencing. Passion, commitment, and the will to move forward is what drives us.
The festival will indeed be there, and will continue to keep cinema alive.
But why this persistent determination despite the critical situation? It is to revisit the memory of the Festival, to evaluate its audience both locally and abroad, to think about its future, to reinvent the means so it remains shining, to schedule the best movies from the previous sessions, to dust off whole sections of the critical production dedicated to it. A whole program that gives a sense and legitimizes this initiative.
It is around these objectives that the JCC Steering Committee has been working to transform the actual situation into a new beginning, thus giving this session a special, exceptional aspect where the retrospective approach will pave the way for a forward-looking approach.
