French films reap awards at Sundance
French short films were honored with two fine awards at the Sundance Film Festival 2021, while a documentary feature blurring the boundaries between genres also received an award.
The Mecca of American independent cinema, which has opened up to world cinema in recent years, announced its awards list on February 3, at the end of the 2021 edition, which took place entirely online.
In addition to the fact that a remake of a French film created the biggest splash at this year's edition, scooping up awards (CODA by Siân Heder, which transposes the plot of The Bélier Family by Éric Lartigau to the East Coast of the United States), two French short films, one a fiction The Criminals and the other an animation Souvenir Souvenir, received awards, thus becoming eligible for the 2022 Oscars.
Finally, the Denmark/Sweden/Norway/France coproduction Flee received the Jury Prize in the World Cinema Documentary section, blurring the boundaries between genres magnificently since it is not only a documentary, but also an animated film.
