The Screenings
With Sinema Koltar, Île Courts Festival unfolds its screen right under the stars. In lineup, a selection of short films from the entire Indian Ocean. It’s in front of the Plaza that this series continues, with a Soundtrack as musical opening act to this night of screenings!


Sébastien Margéot Project

Before watching the films, let’s unite musically around the Soundtracks, opening musical act of the screenings of Île Courts Festival. Together, the four musicians of the Sébastien Margéot Project put their musical talent to the service of a spirit of world-fusion that asserts itself as innovative in its mission to tie the present up with the traditions of the past. Together, they are a breath of life.
