RFC 7 – April 13 to 21, 2012: RFC generation is running

The festival, which has a growing international echo, has become the ambassador of Malagasy cinema. Motivated by the belief that a quality cinema can exist in Madagascar, RFCs pursue a twofold fundamental objective: to discover the creative extent of the short film and to support Malagasy production by offering it a platform of International recognition. Co-organized by the Association of Film encounters Court, the French Institute of Madagascar and Rozifilms, for 7 years already, we are a “baby festival” but endowed with an unchallenged motivation! Our visual this year is the reflection: the RFC logo is anchored in the ground. But the most important thing is that the “RFC generation” grows, it progresses, it asserts itself. This new generation of Malagasy filmmakers has found a springboard and showcase for their talents at RFC. If this event has taken on the scale that it currently has they are the ones to be congratulated! The intuition that guided the creation of this festival proved to be fair: talent is there, we had no doubt, but above all we are able to realize this potential and tell our own stories!
