The Grand Prize from the International Jury

The International Jury, composed of Monia Chokri, Franco Lolli, Mounia Meddour, Gianfranco Rosi, and Rosalie Varda unanimously awarded the Grand Prize from the International Jury to Adolescentes, directed by Sébastien Lifshitz, produced by Agat Films & Cie / Ex Nihilo, and sold by The Party Film Sales.

"With an irresistible empathy, Sebastien Lifhsitz immerses the viewer in the intimacy of Emma and Anaïs, the intimacy of their friendship, their families and the love they all share.

Adolescentes is a deeply humanistic, precise, funny, and sometimes cruel portrait of two young women from a small town. Following Emma and Anaïs over a period of five years, the film describes the reality of adolescence in France in the 2010s and the complexity of young people's integration into society, whatever their personal background.

The film is guided by a very sensitive and delicate camera that magnifies the director's extreme awareness of reality. Sébastien Lifshitz constantly finds the right distance with his subject, pushing back the boundaries between documentary and fiction."

The International Press Prize for a Feature Film

The International Press Jury, composed of Susanne Burg, Robby Eksiel, Zouhour Harbaoui, Katie Parker, Daria Porycka, Clarence Tsui & Veronika Zajdela, unanimously awarded the International Press Prize for a Feature Film to Josep, directed by Aurel, produced by Les Films d'Ici Méditerranée, and sold by The Party Film Sales.

"We decided unanimously to award Josep the Best Feature Film Prize because it is a complete, accomplished, and confident film, at once personal, political, and artistic.

The filmmaker successfully integrates Josep Bartoli's art into his own mise en scène, creating a tribute to the Catalan artist's legacy and to the power of animation - and cinema in general."

The International Press Prize for a Short Film

The International Press Jury selected Not a Word, directed by Élodie Wallace, produced by 2.4.7. Films (247 Films), and sold by Shortcuts.

"We decided to give the Best Short Film Prize to Not a Word by Élodie Wallace, for the skillful and transparent way in which it balances humour and sensitivity with the timely aspects of its story. This film reveals a very steady and confident director."

The Audience Prize for a Feature Film

The Audience Prize for a Feature Film was awarded to Josep, directed by Aurel, produced by Les Films d'Ici Méditerranée, and sold by The Party Film Sales.

The Audience Prize for a Short Film

The Audience Prize for a Short Film was awarded to Intermission, directed by Anthony Lemaitre, produced by Tripode Productions, and sold by Shortcuts.
