Tous à Table! A Short Film Celebration of the arts of the table

Sat 16 Sep

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the world-renowned Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival, the team have cooked up a delicious retrospective celebrating the art of gastronomy and the pleasure of dining in all its forms, from the most unpretentious to the most sophisticated.  

It is an incredibly mouth-watering theme that is representative of what a cycle of films on wine (and food) should be: a moment of conviviality, sharing, and discovery of fiction, documentary and animation films that all share the same love of a good table!
