2015 Collection


2015 Île Courts Festival is a real little film factory!

Set in place by Porteurs d’Images Association, the programme Film Fabrik offers to scriptwriters/directors, since 2008, the technical, financial and logistical means to make their own films, lending them a helping hand from the stage of working on the script to diffusing the finished artwork.
Film Fabrik is the will to foster the development of a unique local cinema, one very much our own yet capable of travelling well beyond our borders. To this day, more than 30 short films have been made within the framework of the Film Fabrik programme.

The 2015 Collection presents the three latest productions of the Festival, films that fall under the umbrellas of both traditional narrative filmmaking and experimental filmmaking.

At the heart of this collection, the films Boutik and Rod Zegwi dan Pikan are the first artistic works to bear the label “Made in Moris.”

In 2014, Damien takes part in the fiction scriptwriting workshop Keeping it Short of the Ile Courts International Film Festival of Mauritius. Following this workshop, his film project Boutik (Cornershop) is taken on for production by the Porteurs d’Images association in the framework of Film Fabrik 2015.
