Île Courts Short Film Festival

Since its creation, Île Courts - International Short Film Festival of Mauritius acts as a tool-kit for the development of cinema in Mauritius.

Île Courts is meant to be a showcase for a different cinema in Mauritius, and regularly screens movies from all over the world, taking us on a surprising journey into the heart of contemporary cinema.

Always active in its endeavour, Île Courts also hosts training workshops, debates, roundtables and professional meetings. It is therefore a place for all the people involved in the production of short movies in the Indian Ocean to meet.

Île Courts is a real factory too. The workshops, ran by professionals, offer opportunities for the participants to successfully lead a film project. Since 2009, 24 short movies (fiction and documentaries), published in 4 collections, have thus been produced through the festival.

A development tool kit for cinema

The missions of Île Courts are :

to help enable the creation of locally directed films,

to develop an audience for a different cinema in Mauritius,

to enable Indian Ocean film professionals to meet.
