Last month, I was lucky enough to be invited in three film festivals : Grenoble and Gap in France, and Kendal in UK.
I have to say I really like to come and talk about my movies. Like we said : #itsAllAboutSharing.
So, the first one was Grenoble. it’s a big festival in France, with around 3500 people in the audience and a super big screen. the good thing is : it’s free! I did a short interview for local TV with Théo de Blic, and we spoke together on the stage for Sounds Of Paragliding. The next day, I was still there to comment Chasing Summits.
Few days after that, I was in Gap, only for Chasing Summits. It’s a smaller festival, but super nice.
And my tour ended in UK for the Kendal Mountain Film Festival. And woooo… that was EXCELLENT ! great spirit, amazing festival, cool people…
I started the trip with my first talk (and it was in english !) about « beeing a filmmaker » That was really interesting to explain how I became director and what I think is important to make a good movie. And it was also for me the opportunity to talk about the danger when you film action sports…
My mate Tom de Dorlodot was there also and he came back on all his amazing trips around the world.
We spent 3 really nice days there, watching some movies, doing some interview for Channel 4, and meeting a lot of people. And the good surprise was « Sounds of paragliding » receive the best sound prize from the jury ! how cool is that?!
Paragliding Circus s’est vu recevoir l’icare de l’originalité !!! On est vraiment content avec Gill car on a voulu se faire plaisir avant tout, sans chercher à plaire ou à refaire un truc qui a déjà été fait…. Belle récompense! Si vous ne l’avez pas encore vu c’est à voir!
