In 1983, 10 years after the launch of the "Coupe Icare" or ICARUS CUP, the FIRST INTERNATIONAL FREE FLIGHT AND AERIAL SPORTS FILM FESTIVAL hit the screens.
Today, “the ICARES of CINEMA” attracts an audience of nearly 20,000 people and has become a key venue for film and video professionals as well as free-flight enthusiasts.
The Festival brings together cinematic productions (short, medium and full-length features) dealing with air, flight, wind and all aerial sports : paragliding, hang gliding, sky diving, hot-air balloon, sailplane, elastic jump, base jump, kite, boomerang.... Motorized aerial sports are limited to paramotor, ultra-light hang-gliding and paragliding, model aircraft, aerobatics and aerial feats.
Films concerning the bird flight are also accepted.
Every year the Festival receives 80 amateur and professional productions from all over the world.
