A bit of history...

In 2001, as the Festival International des Très Courts is celebrating its third edition, Katia Martin-Maresco joins its team and works on its worldwide expansion.
In collaboration with the organisation Pandora and its director, comics artist Philippe Caza, with whom she had always collaborated, she initiates the Paroles de Femmes (Women's words) selection. This selection of short films about women is now being held high by the Ministry of Women's Affairs.
Along the way, Katia meets a group of students who are all in a situation of disability: becoming aware of all the accessibility issues in cinemas, public and cultural places, she decides – still within the Festival des Très Courts – to launch the Travelling 34 selection, a selection dedicated to short films about disability, along with Philippe Caza, Tristan Incorvaia and Damien Jouteux.
This selection is supported by the inspirer of Untouchables Philippe Pozzo Di Borgo. The initiative is such a success that the team of "Travelling 34" decided to create a new festival in early 2015: that's how the story of the International Film Festival on Disability begins. .
