Jardin Rouge Film Festival welcomes films that break down boundaries: between artistic disciplines, between borders, between society and those it often overlooks at its margins, between reality and what new worlds we can create. We support filmmakers, established and emerging, who challenge convention, and we also encourage submissions that excavate “forgotten” or unexpected art forms and upend established codes of stage and performance for the screen.
