The director’s film, titled Falcon Lake, stars Joseph Engel, Sara Montpetit, Monia Chokri and Arthur Igual. It shows two young people vacationing in a cabin on a Quebec lake haunted by ghostly legends. Despite the age difference between them, the film shows the two teenagers form a unique bond to face their fears.

Four other films are nominated in the Best First Feature category: Bruno Reidal, Confession of a Murderer, The Worst, Holy Omer and The Sixth Child.

Charlotte Le Bon is already known for previous Cesar nominations. Her role as Claire in Nabil Ben Yadir’s La Marche earned her a César nomination for Female Revelation in 2013. And her performance as Victoire Doutreleau in Jail Lespert’s Yves Saint Laurent in 2015 earned her a second César nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

The French-Algerian actor Tahar Rahim will preside over the Cesar ceremony.
