Spotlight on the 20th edition of the Unifrance Short Film Awards

What better than a beacon of light shining from a lighthouse to highlight the selection of films to be presented at this year's anniversary edition of the Unifrance Short Film Awards. We owe this inspiring image that features on the event's poster to Caroline Cherrier—an image that invites us to discover the 22 films selected, all of them filled with great promise.

Inventive and audacious, at times "objects of curiosity," and benefiting from our unwavering support, French short films have always had the ability to conquer international festivals and markets. We are confident that this will not change for the latest 2022 harvest of titles selected at Unifrance Short Film Awards, and we hope that for their directors and producers, this spotlight of attention will help pave the way for outstanding international careers.

The 2022 selection comprises 22 titles, including 6 debut films, directed by 15 female directors and 12 male directors, showcasing a diversity of styles, moods, and themes that have the capacity to take us by surprise, astonish us, raise questions, and will leave no one indifferent.
