The Air France Audience Prize presented in Tokyo to Agnus Dei

This year's winner of the Air France Audience Prize is Anne Fontaine's film Agnus Dei, announced at the awards ceremony of the 25th French Film Festival in Japan held on June 26.

For the second year, UniFrance and Air France have joined forces to present the Air France Audience Prize in Tokyo, an award given to the film chosen by Japanese audiences from the selection of feature films showcased at the French Film Festival in Japan.

A random draw was held of entries received from audience members who voted for their preferred film, with the winner offered a return trip for two to Paris. The winning film will be screened on Air France flights from September.

Following the count of 2,400 votes, the winning film was announced as Agnus Dei by Anne Fontaine. The director was present at the festival to accompany her film, along with her lead actress Lou de Laâge. The film strongly appealed to Japanese audiences, who were won over by this tale of a friendship set during the Second World War between a young intern with the Red Cross and Polish nuns at a convent, three of whom fall pregnant in dramatic circumstances.
