There are some events that aim to please as many people as possible – mass appeal for families and tourists so everyone leaves happy. The Open Air Cinema
series of movie screenings is a great example of that. However, this approach isn’t for everyone. The organisers of the annual Silhouette Film Festival in Paris always
take things a little bit further. This is a true film festival, not a chance to lie back and watch a movie in the park. The aim here is to showcase a series of short
films to keen film fans, allowing locals to see French talent that may have otherwise been hidden. If that wasn’t enough there are also jury-awarded prizes for
the best films.
Visitors can enjoy this free event, and the complementary musical concert, between the 24th of August and 1st of September. It is estimated that as many as 20,000 people could attend, so make sure to grab the best spot!
