Wednesday November 17, 2021

The FIFDH is glad to join the Super Foehn association, COS and the Festival Les Créatives to show you the film EXTERIEUR JOUR!

This film was born in the framework of a film creation workshop offered by Super Foehn to young migrant women. The participants discovered the tools of cinema through several workshops, and the ideas that emerged were realised during a weekend of shooting. Directors, cinematographers, sound engineers, scriptwriters, make-up artists and actresses all found their place and were able to express themselves.

Come discover with us the result!

EXTERIEUR JOUR screening, Wednesday 17 November 2021 at 6.30 pm at the Cinéams du Grütli

> Free entry, you just need to register
