Everfest's Take

From the Organizer

Often referred to as the Sundance of Europe, ÉCU – The European Independent Film Festival, is dedicated to the discovery and advancement of the very best independent filmmakers from around the world. Taking place every year in Paris, ÉCU showcases innovative and creative films that are judged in 14 categories and compete for 25 awards. It provides a unique platform for risk-taking storytellers, and audience members alike, to connect outside of commercial-hungry major studio projects. This year, the 15th edition of ÉCU will be screening around 80 films on 24th, 25th and 26th April 2020. In addition to the film projections, there will be a wide variety of events for all attendees to participate in throughout the weekend, including Q&As with Directors and workshops with industry professionals on a range of topics. The weekend will also be filled with incredible live music and amazing after parties. So if you are looking for a festival with a difference, don’t miss ÉCU 2020 this April! We are proud to be a filmmakers’ festival!
