UniFrance and the Alpe d'Huez Film Festival have joined forces to create the UniFrance Comedy Award, which will be given each year to the French comedy that has garnered the highest number of admissions abroad.

Welcome to the Land of Ch'tis, The Bélier Family, The Intouchables, Serial (Bad) Weddings… Just a few examples of French films that prove that humor can sometimes cross over borders.
To pay tribute to these comedies which provide a great showcase for French cinema abroad, UniFrance is delighted to join with the Alpe d'Huez Film Festival in creating the UniFrance Comedy Award.
