The red carpet was soaked but ultimately, what we remember from this second edition is that under the umbrellas, the smiles were out. “We felt lots of good vibes”, summarizes Jérôme Pulis, admitting that the ambient humidity of the last few days was ultimately “real cinema weather”. With a certain advantage, without sunlight the public takes to dark rooms more than to the beaches. Moreover, one of the festival’s key events, the screening of the film “Peggy Sue Got Married” on the Port Vieux beach, had to be canceled…

This is one of the few shadows on the board. Sandrine Brauer was pleased to have exceeded 10,000 entries during the first five days of the festival. “We will be around 11,000 with the ticketing for the last day which has not yet been counted. And this, with the same number of sessions as in 2023, i.e. 30”.

Notoriety helps

If these figures demonstrate the public’s interest in the festival in general, they are also scrutinized by distributors, producers and directors who take the temperature before the official release of the films. “They are also very attentive to welcoming the public, to adapt their way of defending the work at its launch,” notes the general delegate.

Festival-goers who were able to compare the two editions noted “better programming”. Jérôme Pulis explains it by easier selection work. “We had more spontaneous applications, more diverse choices for the selection committee.” Sandrine Brauer: “The notoriety of the festival which has been established since last year helps. We were able to bring in new faces and fulfill our mission of offering the public a beautiful kaleidoscope. With it comes the quality of the films.”

For its third edition, the Nouvelles Vagues festival will be scheduled, as in 2023, for the last week of June and will take place over six days.
