RFC 5 – April 9 to 17, 2010: The Unique Film Festival in Madagascar
This 5th edition of the festival extends this time for 9 days. The program is enriched, many international guests come, the Ti’kino gets back into service and the partners are increasing. The festival is animated by its first “ciné-concert”, its various initiation and discovery workshops. It also inaugurates the “Espace festivalier” which will serve as a meeting place between festival-goers (filmmakers, audiences, international guests,…) and information desk. In addition to, for the first time, the festival’s closing evening will be broadcast live on television thanks to the fruitful partnership between the RFCs and the RTA. In short, the Short Film Festival is becoming the only real “instant of cinema” of the year in Madagascar. The French Institute of Madagascar, the Iris Association and the production company Rozifilms give to all, during these 9 days, the opportunity to share and transmit these moments despite the instability of the country.
