Since 2013, Olivier Père, Executive Director of ARTE France Cinéma, has been conducting interviews with personalities from the world of film. Olivier Père explains: “Our guests are interviewed in an intimate atmosphere - unlike for promotional interviews".
The interviews with directors (and sometimes actors or producers) are carried out in a simple manner, facing the camera. They mostly take place during the Cannes Film Festival, when films are presented in the various categories, but also sometimes in Paris.
Olivier Père explains: “Our guests are interviewed in an intimate atmosphere - unlike for promotional interviews - in which we show our interest or admiration (and often both, simultaneously) regarding specific aspects of the writing, directing or producing of the film, and naturally, regarding the author’s intentions and motivations. Interviewees include budding filmmakers, who have risen to prominence following an outstanding first film, as well as experienced filmmakers and leading names in French, European and international cinema”.
