Not sure what Paris weather will be like in the first 2 weeks of July yet if it's warm and sticky as in our New York area lately, plopping yourself down in the (hopefully) comfy seat of an air conditioned movie theater sounds like a plan.
That was reason number 3.
Reason number 2 is the price, only 5 Euros Per Screening.
Let me mention just one part, the international COMPETITION, the festival offers a competition of 8 feature-length films short-listed from over 1100 films coming from all over the world. Accompanied by their authors, the films are running for four prices.
