Submit a film

Since its creation in 2007, Île Courts–International Short Film Festival of Mauritius acts as a tool-kit for the development of cinema in Mauritius. Non-competitive, Île Courts Festival is meant to be a showcase for a different cinema in Mauritius, taking us to a surprising journey into world cinema, with a focus given on short films from the Indian Ocean area, at a crossroad between Africa and Asia. With the Film Bazar Forum which will be held just before the Festival, Île Courts is also a place to meet and exchange for film professionals of the Indian Ocean.

As part of The Archipelago of Cinemas project, the 8th edition of Île Courts-International Short Film Festival of Mauritius will take place from 6 to 10 October 2015, in various cities and villages throughout the island.
