The second week of the Festival has started and it is still full of surprises.
We are proud to announce DALLAS BUYERS CLUB on Saturday, October 19th at 1:00 pm at Cinema Excentris, in Présentation spéciale. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, the film stages Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto and it is distributed by Remstar Films.

When Texan cowboy Ron Woodroof is diagnosed with HIV, he is prescribed a highly toxic drug and given thirty days to live. Refusing to accept this death sentence, Woodroof taps into the world of underground pharmaceuticals and becomes a kingpin of an unapproved alternative treatment that is both restorative and life extending. Woodroof struggles with the FDA as he helps spread awareness of the government’s misinformation, taking a stand against the politically corrupt who prefer to profit from the sick instead of aiding them in their recovery.
