The 18th edition of Escales Documentaires – International Festival of Creative Documentary will take place from the 6th to the 11th of November in La Rochelle.
Submissions for the Creative Documentary Competition are open from the 1st of February to the 31st of May included.
The Creative Documentary Competition is interested in the creative documentary whatever its length, without any condition of theme or form (animated documentary, experimental, etc.) and puts forward the recent documentary production (films produced after the 1st of June 2017).
Films registered in the Creative Documentary Competition can be selected to compete in the following competitions: International Competition and Youth Competition.
The distinctive characteristic of the Escales Documentaires Festival lies in the the selection committee as these are the volunteers (more than 50 viewers) that make the programme with the implication for the Youth Competition of high schools students and young working persons.
Submitted films might be selected for other non-competitive sections that are part of the Escales Documentaires’ official selection: young audience, escale du monde, thema, etc.
