ACID is an association of film directors which supports the cinema distribution of independent films all year round within its network of cinema theatres, festivals, moviegoers and schools… The ACID programme at the Cannes Film Festival was created in 1993. It screens feature films, fiction and documentary, chosen by ACID filmmakers who follow their love for a film and wish to give visibility to directors whose work is scarcely distributed, in order to facilitate a theatrical release.
The screenings, open to professionals and to the public, are all followed by Q&As with the films’ crews and ACID filmmakers. The films shown in Cannes are then accompanied by ACID and its filmmakers in the various stages of the theatrical release.
