Unifrance renewed its partnership, initiated in 2021, with the NewImages Festival to award the prize for the best French XR work for export. Chosen by the jury, one of the French producers in competition received a €1,000 grant to help promote their work internationally during the year: the UniFrance / NewImages Festival 2022 Export Grant was awarded to the company Onyo, which produced The Tree of Light by Yann Garreau and Charlotte-Amélie Veaux.
