Language: French with English subtitles

Over a thousand young aspiring filmmakers rush through the doors of one of the world’s most prestigious film schools, ready to take the very first test of a long series for the entrance exam. For most applicants, there won’t be a second, step nor a third, as only a handful of students get lucky enough each year to call La Fémis home. Dreams of cinema, success, hopes, disappointment, judgement — it is the jury members as much as the candidates being closely analysed in this cinéma vérité-style documentary.

Filmmaker Claire Simon observes with empathy, humour and a bit of malice, while the audience assists the jury decisions and discussions that usually happen behind closed doors. The great variety of applicants profiled is as thrilling for the jury as it is for the film’s audience.
