Winter Film Festival of Vebron 2021
The year 2020 did not allow us, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, to be able to organize a Film Festival for you. This is the first time since the creation of the event in 1988 that the Festival could not take place. We regret it very much, but it was normal to react with lucidity and responsibility. By cancelling the event last July, we wanted to show our respect and deep gratitude to the nursing staff, as well as to all those who had chosen solidarity and general interest.
Every year, Vebron is a beautiful celebration for the lovers of the 7th Art. Even if at first we did not choose the option of postponement, out of respect for the directors who had registered their films (nearly 400) and in view of the number of hours spent by the screening committee to make the selection, the team, which has selected 37 films, still wishes that a Palmarès of the 33rd edition be established.
This is why we have decided to organize exceptionally this year "The Winter Film Festival of Vebron" on March 6 and 7, 2021. As the public cannot be welcomed in person, a digital version will be presented to you. You will thus be able to see the 37 selected films of the year 2020 from your home and during the whole weekend.
We will come back to you soon to present you the details of this exceptional edition.
Looking forward to 2021!
You can now register your short film for the next Vebron International Film Festival which will take place from July 20 to 24, 2021.
Our competition is open to all amateur and professional videographers.
All short films made after January 1st, 2018 in the categories: fiction, documentary, animation, are admitted.
The maximum duration (including credits) must be 30 minutes and must be spoken or subtitled in French.
For this, you just have to register via the platform ShortFilmDepot.com before April 15, 2021.
Rules and registration form: here
This year, 388 films from 38 countries have been registered for the pre-selection of this 33rd competition of the Vebron International Film Festival, which proves that the world of video is creative, abundant, attractive, interesting...
Out of all these films, only 37 short films were selected, i.e. 12 hours of screenings.
In March 2021, a screening will be organized, so a prize list for the 33rd festival will be established.
Nevertheless, you are invited to register since November 15, 2020 for the registration campaign for the selection of films in competition for the Vebron International Film Festival 2021.
CANCELLATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL OF VÉBRON 2020.
Due to the exceptional circumstances caused by the Covid-19 virus and like many other Film Festivals in France, l'Écran Cévenol, the organizing association of the Vébron International Film Festival, is forced to cancel the 2020 edition which was to be held from July 21 to 25.
With 1 month ½ to go before the launch of this new edition, it's a great disappointment for the whole team, and it was a difficult decision to make.
During the last few weeks, driven by our passion and enthusiasm, we hoped to be able to offer you a good festival. We were looking forward to welcoming you as we do every year in July in Vebron.
The health crisis we are facing does not allow us to organize the event in the best conditions. Reason and the current situation oblige us today to act with lucidity and responsibility and thus show our respect and deep gratitude to the nursing staff, as well as to all those who choose solidarity and general interest.
Every year, Vebron is a beautiful festival, a "festival for lovers of the 7th art". We cannot bring ourselves to celebrate this edition of the Festival when some of you will not be able to participate.
We have not retained the option of a postponement. The material conditions and the calendar of the usual events, do not allow us to consider this option serenely.
The Association l'Écran Cévenol would like to thank all of its guests and partners who had to be present at this edition, as well as its faithful festival-goers.
The whole team of the Écran Cévenol Association looks forward to seeing you next year. Please note the dates: from July 20 to 24, 2021, to celebrate in Vebron, as it should be the 34th edition of the International Film Festival.
The whole team of Écran Cévenol, organizer of the Vébron International Film Festival, thanks you for your understanding.
