Friday 13th december from 9a.m to 11a.m (Free admission)
The Climax Award aims to promote and strengthen genre scriptwriters and scenarios, to build a pool of francophone talents and to develop French genre film production.
The competition was harsh, 5 scenarios were chosen for the final round of the 2019 Climax Award:
- LES GUERRIERS by Aurélien Mathieu
- L’HOTE by Franck Richard and Florent Silieri
- JE KYLL by Robin Plomb
- PSYCHONAUTES by Rémi Brion
- SACRIFICE by Mathieu Delozier and Joël Petitjean.
For its 4th year, Climax will be a hallucinatory plunge into an apocalyptic sect, a film noir where telepaths compete for the future of the world, a confrontation between suburbs and the countryside, hunting rifles versus automatic weapons, the agonizing encounter of a middle-aged doppelgänger and a schizophrenic musical ... all that while listening to Heavy metal!
As for the jury, the projects will be judged by the best of teams, the one responsible for the Netflix phenomenon "Girls With Balls": Olivier Afonso (Director), Louise Blachère (actress), Jean-Luc Cano (Screenwriter), Amélie Grossier (Makeup Artist) and Nicolas Herlin (fx makeup artist, animatronic).
After the projection of the finalists' videos pitches and the award ceremony, the jury will take part in a joyful master class, entitled: "Making a genre film from A to Z with the team from Girls With Balls !!!"
