CINEMA: Mehdi Donk on the bill at the Nikon Film Festival


An essential passage for short film directors, the Nikon Film Festival is a major festival in the field in France and internationally, which rewards young film talents every year.

Created in 2010 by Nikon France, this year's exercise imposed a duration of 2 minutes 20 on the theme of the game, without a budget and with a delay of only ten days between the start of writing and the publication of the short film. It is with his short film entitled "Roshambourg" that Mehdi Donk strikes hard. Entirely written and produced by him, and surrounded by a small team, Mehdi Donk offers a false documentary that takes us to the heart of the fictional city of Roshambourg where the company meets the rules of the famous game of Pierre-Papier-Ciseaux, better known under the name of "Chifoumi". 27-year-old Saint-Martin, Mehdi is a pure autodidact, coming from the large pool of talents of the island. Passionate about the seventh art, he traveled to Paris to pursue his dream, having no training in writing, directing or film production.

With his loyal team, he directed four short films and a first web series. He then had to try the experience of the Nikon Film Festival. Through his short film, Mehdi Donk shakes up the codes because what would be the limits of a system governing the rules of a game as offbeat as Chifoumi. If the shooting was carried out in Paris over an hour of time, the universe that emerges from the short film is as exotic as its appearance is absurd, all against a background close to reality. Being nominated for the Nikon Film Festival is recognition and a great opportunity to rise through the ranks in this very special environment. To access the second stage of this prestigious competition, Mehdi Donk needs to collect as many votes as possible from internet users.
