We start submitting the film to international festivals for evaluation. This is, first of all, hard work. The Basel filmmaker Felix Schaffert, who is also on the selection committee of the Slamdance Festival in Park City, Utah, is acting as the "La Troisième Langue" festival agent.
LA TROISIÈME LANGUE has been selected for the DOC INTERNATIONAL MARKET category of the festival Visions du Réel Nyon 2016. The films in this category, beside the official festival program, are judged to have the potential to be promoted internationally. Accredited producers and distributors can view the film via a coded link. The selected films are presented on the Media Library platform of the Visions du Réel.
