Are you the kind of person who starts tapping their foot as soon as they hear a note of music? Then this programme is for you! Featuring the latest music videos and films that have captivated us, Watch & Dance will be presented by the incredible Raman Djafari, who directed the video clip of ‘Cold Heart’ by Dua Lipa and Elton John no less!

The Man Who Planted Trees - 28/02

Why show this 1987 masterpiece today? Because trees are essential and the festival wants to celebrate the greening of its surroundings: Place Flagey and Place Sainte-Croix. Adapted from Jean Giono’s short story, this film tells with great lyricism the story of a determined man who single-handedly planted a forest.

Babeldom - 29/02
