The eclectism of the catalogue is due to their curiosity and their appetite for encounters and friendship, which enabled Orly Films to be associated with films like “The little thief”, “Indochine” or “In the mood for love”... Lately, Nicolas Vannier has developed genre films such as “Le pharmacien de garde” by Jean Veber, or “Le ciel, les oiseaux et... ta mère !”, Djamel Bensalah’s first film starring Jamel Debbouze.

How was the MAKE ME A MOVIE (FAIS-MOI DU CINÉMA) selection born?

It all started a few years ago in a movie theater where I was two seats away from a young man with Tourette's syndrome. It is an invisible disability characterized by vocal tics.

Ten minutes after the film began, two guards entered the room and forced the young man out with force. It upset me so much that I also left the room to go home.

And it is for this reason, and to change the way people look at others, that we decided to set up a partnership, for the past three years, with film schools in France and abroad to offer students the opportunity to work on the theme of invisible disability. This year, out of 80 short films, 26 were selected.

Each year, a jury is dedicated to this selection.

Katia Martin-Maresco, founder and director of IFFD
