Burning Bright: New French Filmmakers is back for the fifth edition, presenting recent prize-winning films by emerging French filmmakers. This year’s selections include multiple US and NY premieres from nine features and three short films. This new generation of French cinematic voices delivers a fresh and distinctive visual take on the world, introducing creative narratives and turning the lens on faces and places rarely seen on screen.

In The World After Us, Labidi’s days of food delivery work and roommates might finally be over when he receives word that his first book will be published. At the same time, he strikes up a whirlwind romance with a student, Elsa. Never one to give up, Labidi’s world is a frantic comedic jaunt of juggling love, life and his passion all in efforts to make ends meet. Supported by intimate and captivating cinematography, and strong performances, Louda Ben Salah’s first film offers a touching look at integration and social mobility.
