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.

As part of The Archipelago of Cinemas project, the 10th edition of Île Courts-International Short Film Festival of Mauritius will take place from 10 to 15 October 2017, in various cities and villages throughout the island.
