The short film Help! by Jean Marboeuf honored at Montreal

Jean Marbœuf's short film Help! has picked up the Grand Prize at the Montreal World Film Festival. Could this indicate Oscar potential?

Help! by Jean Marbœuf has won the top award for a short film at the latest Montreal World Film Festival.

This prize adds kudos to Marboeuf's long career as a director of, as he likes to describe his work, "successful, almost successful films, complete failures, and not quite failures," films that are nonetheless all provocative and free-spirited.

The Montreal World Film Festival requires films to be presented as world premieres in the competitive short film section. This year, eleven shorts have been selected, including two French titles.

Since the festival is recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the director has the possibility of being selected to join in the race for an Oscar. We'll keep you posted!

Watch the film at: Help! (pro access only)
