The Stars of the short film were created in Pau in 2007 by Vidéo Tout Tendance. They were then "transferred" in 2010 to Mourenx and then "died out".

With the agreement of the founding members Didier LABAN and Jean LASSUS-PIGAT, the city of Cabestany and Image In decided to continue the adventure by organizing since 2012, the Étoiles du court in the André ABET cinema hall.

This concept, unique in France, allows the best award-winning films to be presented at the biggest events (César, Clermont-Ferrand, etc.) and the various partner short film festivals.

Welcome to the 4th edition of the Meraki Film Festival. For this edition we will be in both Berlin (Germany) and Madrid (Spain)! Two cities, double the chance to be selected or even to be selected twice!

Our festival is inspired by the meaning of the word “Meraki“ and its relation to the process of creating films and screenplays.

The term “Meraki“ is reserved for projects that are a labour of love that have been borne out of absolute devotion during the creation process. If you have put your heart and soul into creating a film or screenplay than this is the Festival for you to celebrate your success and hard work.

It is a perfect event to show your work to a film-passionate and “connoisseur” audience. Our festival's philosophy is about promoting new opportunities for people [...]
