Event Originally produced by Metrograph in 2016.
Summary La Fémis is one of the most prestigious film schools in the world, offering hands-on training from working professionals and accepting only forty students per year from hundreds of applicants. This Wiseman-esque documentary observes the process whereby those lucky forty are selected—a process which is revealed to be highly personal, idiosyncratic, and subject to the vagaries of taste and personal prejudice. THE COMPETITION offers not only a unique opportunity to see the inner workings of an institution at the very heart of the French film industry, but an invitation to look at the assumptions and roadblocks that shape any national film industry, and higher education in general. Winner, Best Documentary on Cinema at the **Venice Film Festival** Nominated for Best Documentary at the **London Film Festival**. *"A film which was put together with warm simplicity and is utterly captivating." - Fabien Lemercier, **Cineuropa***
