Solaris Film Festival is an international film festival with live screening in Nice, Southern France.
Our first issue took place successfully in Hotel Campanile, Nice France on the dates 1.6 - 3.6 2017.
The SOLARIS FILM FESTIVAL was founded to bring the most original filmmakers together with diverse audiences for its annual program of feature and short films, experimental films, and student work. All genres are welcome.
The Festival’s name is an homage to the Andrei Tarkovsky iconic film Solaris. The film by Tarkovsky is not only a science fiction film but also a philosophical and poetical narrative.
We are looking for the most profound and original films and prefer to see films made primarily for aesthetic and philosophical reasons rather than political purposes or commercial profit.
Also Solaris refers to the sunshine of the Southern France where the festival takes place.
June in Nice is a magnificent time. Also it is a very convenient time for filmmakers and cinema lovers who come to the Cannes Film Festival. Right after the closing party they can go to Nice and the magic of film celebration will continue!
The Festival is dedicated to the discovery of the independent international artists and also welcomes established filmmakers.
