Another major highlight of the day was the presentation of the 2021 Distribution Prize:

In their common desire to promote French productions internationally, UniFrance and La Fête du court métrage have joined forces to accompany and support the work of a distribution company, not only for the way it promotes works at foreign festivals, but also for its efforts to raise the visibility of these works in commercial circuits.
This year's Distribution Prize has been awarded to Olivier BerlemontoriGine films.
