Next Floor

a narrative film in no language

De Denis Villeneuve
D'après une idée originale de Phoebe Greenberg

Au cours d’un opulent et luxueux banquet, onze convives, servis sans retenue par des valets et des serviteurs attentionnés, participent à un étrange rituel aux allures de carnage gastronomique. Dans cet univers absurde et grotesque, une succession d’événements viendra secouer la procession de cette symphonie d’abondance.

Présenté dans plus de 200 festivals de par le monde.

A reçu près de 60 prix internationaux, dont :

Prix Canal + du Meilleur Court Métrage, Semaine de la Critique du Festival de Cannes 2008

Prix Génie et Jutra du meilleur court métrage dramatique (2009)

By Denis Villeneuve
Based on an original idea by Phoebe Greenberg

During an opulent and luxurious banquet, complete with cavalier servers and valets, eleven pampered guests participate in what appears to be a ritualistic gastronomic carnage. In this absurd and grotesque universe, an unexpected sequence of events undermines the endless symphony of abundance.

Shown in over 200 festivals worldwide.

Winner of nearly 60 international prizes, amongst others:

Prix Canal + for best short film, Semaine de la Critique, Cannes Film Festival 2008

Genie and Jutra Awards for Best Live Action Short Drama (2009)

NORRØNA MAGAZINE Narvik freeride

a documentary in no language

Welcome to Narvik - http://www.norrona.com/Concepts/narvik

Visiting Narvik, Norway, with Norrøna ambassadors Per "PG" Huss, Bjørn Thomas Romsøe, Torkel Karoliussen and friends. Freeride skiing in and around Narvik Skisenter, as well as surrounding mountain areas.

Narvik offers the best and biggest lift based terrain for freeride in Norway. When the conditions are right there is no ski area in the country that can match the potential in this place, and maybe none in the world with a more exotic backdrop.

THE SIMPSONS continues to strike a chord with viewers for irreverently poking fun at anything and everything. As the longest-running scripted series in television history, THE SIMPSONS has become one of the most consistently groundbreaking, innovative and recognizable entertainment franchises throughout the world. With its subversive humor and delightful wit, the series has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture, and its family members – HOMER (Dan Castellaneta), MARGE (Julie Kavner), BART (Nancy Cartwright), LISA (Yeardley Smith) and MAGGIE – are television icons. Recently renewed for the unprecedented 28th season, THE SIMPSONS has won 31 Emmy Awards, a 2015 People’s Choice Award and was nominated for an Academy Award in 2012 for the theatrical short “The Longest Daycare.” The series recently received five 2015 Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Animated Program. “The Simpsons Movie” was a hit feature film; the mega-attraction “The Simpsons Ride” at Universal Studios has received historic expansion updates with the addition of Springfield added to the roster; and the show was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2000. It was named the “Best Show of the 20th Century” by Time magazine, and called the “Greatest American Sitcom” by Entertainment Weekly in 2013.
