Continuing the series of heroines as representations of screen mysteries, initiated two years ago, festival organizers were charmed by this allegorical figure of the cinema who gives life to the image with a single stroke of her luminous brush.

The figure illuminates the scene with her presence; the magic of her enigmatic gaze heightened by her austere attire, the grace of her gesture is an invitation to follow.

The festival will be presided over by Jury President Tim Burton. The festival runs from the 12 May with a Gala screening of Ridley Scott's Robin Hood and closes on the 23rd May.
