Official Paris Short Film Festival Trailer



This year’s PSFF will run at the underground Ciné XIII Théâtre, in the heart of scenic Montmartre. Known as the Harlem of Paris, Montmartre is peopled with Bohemian ghosts of the past: painters van Gogh, Renoir, Picasso and Pisarro, jazz legend Louis Armstrong, and many more illustrious artists lived in the neighbourhood.

Family-run historic theatre Ciné XIII is located in Montmartre’s artistic centre: the 120-seat theatre will show three screenings each night, and conversation will flow all evening in the atmospheric Neo Art Déco bar and salon space over three underground floors.
