Tsamo, directed by Anastasia Lapsui and Markku Lehmuskallio, has been officially selected in Section GRAINES DE CINEPHAGES in the frame of the Films de Femmes – 38th Créteil International Women’s Film Festival that will run from 18th – 27th March 2016 at the Maison des Arts of Créteil – France.
“The Créteil International Women’s Film Festival is an annual event in Créteil, Paris, France founded by Jackie Buet in 1978 to showcase the directing talents of female filmmakers who, at the time, had difficulty getting their films adequately distributed. The first festival was held in 1979 in Sceaux. It transferred to Créteil in 1985.
Located southeast of the center of the city of Paris, today the festival is 10 non-stop days premiering 50 or more new films directed by one or more women. The festival also offers film classes, thematic forums and debates. The competition is open to women from around the world who have made a feature-length documentary, a short length fiction and a documentary film. Their work is judged by a jury of 6 cinema professionals.”
