Rencontres du Film Court Madagascar, also called RFC is the only film festival in Madagascar.
The Festival was founded in 2006 by Laza, a malagasy filmmaker and producer and is organised by L’Association Rencontres du Film Court, the Institut Français de Madagascar and Rozifilms. It is held annually in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar.
In 2013 the festival welcomed around 12.000 visitors and is still constantly growing. During the 11. edition of RFC around 20.000 visitors have been counted.
The festivals main focus besides offering free screenings to the public is to step in for a non-existing film school and provide cinematographic knowledge. Every year several meetings and workshops come along with the screenings.
