As part of the cooperation between the Île-de-France region and Algiers’ Wilaya, the PCMMO co-organizes, with the Art and Culture institution, Les Rendez-Vous cinématographiques d’Alger. This festival aims to unite Algiers’ public around French and Algerian cinemas.

The first edition took place from November 2nd to November 4th 2017.

The program of this first edition highlighted French and Algerians directors and their filmic productions. Three full-length pictures were introduced by their directors – Chad Chenouga and Fejria Deliba – or, for the preview showing of EN ATTENDANT LES HIRONDELLES, their staff, and themes as intimate as universal were discussed, creating the meeting between France and Algeria.

The goal of this event was to put the meeting with the public at its center. Thus, a three short films programming offering a large view of young Algerian directors’ creations was followed by a professional panel: Le court métrage dans tous ses états (Short movie in all its forms). The creative process of a short movie as well as franco-algerian partnerships for their development were discussed.
