The Festival relies on the contribution of a committee of experts in film and sport.
From Hollywood, Ian Birnie, whose programming credibility is recognized by many international festivals (Los Angeles, Toronto, Toronto, Bangkok, Mumbai, Louisiana), has selected some of the best fiction and documentary films of the year.
PULSE! is lucky to be able to rely on the work of Julien Camy, journalist, documentary filmmaker and film historian, specialist of the directors Ken Loach and Sion Sono, and of Gérard Camy, professor and film historian. Sports enthusiasts, the Camys published the first book exploring sport in fiction cinema: "Sport&Cinéma" (Éditions du Bailli de Suffren, 2016), a book featuring more than 1200 sports films.
Jérôme Curchod (TheBonusRoom.com) is in charge of the visual, thematic and signage identity of the Festival. He has been working for more than 20 years for major events in Switzerland and the United States.
Passionate about social networks and digital strategy, Anne-Laure Tanguy-Boch set up the platform. She advises entrepreneurs on their strategic social media choices in French-speaking Switzerland. She is also the author of the blog Lemantiel.ch .
