What’s The Buzz ?
The holiday fever is already halfway through. Paris seems to be more relaxed than ever, though things never stop buzzling around. There are many exciting activities to indulge yourself into – all the culture events, or simply drinks and sun at the Paris Plage. This year fireworks on the National Bastille Day were spectacular as always, but don’t forget- on chilly and quieter nights you can always choose to cosy up and watch some cool indie films on our channel euroifc.com. So as it‘s been said, summer is a perfect time to visit.
Seeing everyone taking it a little bit easier, ÉCU team also sneaks out sometimes into the streets of Paris. Still, we always keep our eyes wide open, look for inspiration, try to be creative and involved, all for making the upcoming XI edition of the ÉCU Film Festival happen again on April 8-9-10, 2016.

We feel that it is one of best way to help talented filmmakers, screenwriters to show their work to as many innovative and international audiences as possible. This is what we all work towards! For the same reason we are always excited to reward the hardest working- we recently sent out the Parrot Drone for the winner of the Best Director award at ÉCU 2015 – Tannaz Hazemi. Hope it is flying high and making some great shots! Thus it is a small reminder to you all that even on holidays amazing ideas can be born and award-winning movies can be made. Submit them early and stay calm; ÉCU team will handle it from on-wards.
Lastly, don’t forget to stay in touch with ÉCU through our social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and more… We will make sure to keep you updated with the latest cinema news and events in Paris and other interesting and amusing stuff: interviews with filmmakers, spotlight articles about directors and movie-makers, as well as all the short videos our interns have been creating.
Have a great summer,
