Maïmouna Doucouré à nouveau récompensée à Sundance

Maïmouna Doucouré leaves the 2020 edition of Sundance crowned with the very fine World Cinema Dramatic Directing Award for Cuties, while three other French coproductions (out of a dozen selected, including short films!) also feature among the awards.

A Sundance veteran, in 2016 Maïmouna Doucouré had received the Jury Prize for her short Mother(s), then in 2017, a Global Filmmaking Award for the screenplay of Cuties. This new prize, received Saturday February 1 for Mignonnes and which this time awards film directing, is hence a form of recognition and an accolade for the filmmaker, whose debut feature has been acquired by Netflix for a worldwide release and which will have a theatrical release in French theaters on April 1st.

Two French coproductions also received awards:

As for short films, the Grand Jury Prize was awarded to So What if the Goats Die by Sofia Alaoui, produced by Envie de Tempête Productions.

All the awards can be found here.
