The Even Not Fear Festival unveils the poster for its 2022 edition

An event which “militates for a cinema magma in perpetual eruption, for an excessive cinema, a cinema bulimic of life, body, pain, introspection, desire, images and sounds.”

The Reunion Island International Fantastic Film Festival unveils the poster for its twelfth edition (to be discovered below), which will take place from February 16 to 19. While waiting to know soon the program of the event, the director, founder and director of Not even afraid, Aurélia Mengin, details in her editorial the main lines of the selection:

“For 12 years, the festival Not even afraid, the Reunion Island International Fantastic Film Festival, works with passion and determination to bring to the screen daring and innovative independent international short and feature films that think outside the box. Our official selection promotes with conviction intimate and powerful films that reinvent the fantastic, sassy films that shake up social conventions, hard-hitting films that scrutinize our humanity through unexpected new axes, courageous films that sanctify old age, moving films that free love, sensuality and beauty from the notion of gender. For each edition, the Festival Not even afraid highlights directors who dare to expose themselves through their films without being afraid of displeasing. For our 12th anniversary, we are proud to once again offer Reunionese film buffs a high-flying program of some sixty short and feature films from around the world, divided into 5 selections: international short films, international feature films, animation, selection of schools, selection of colleges.

Today more than ever, Not even afraid is the Marianne of independent cinema, of free and instinctive cinema, of auteur cinema which is not afraid to break the rules by proposing new aesthetic and narrative attempts. Not even afraid militates for a magma cinema in perpetual eruption, for an excessive cinema, a bulimic cinema of life, body, pain, introspection, desire, images and sounds. For those who wish to be crossed and overwhelmed by intense feelings that will make us beings both more complex and more loving, meet from February 16 to 19 for the 12th edition of the festival. Not even afraid.
