The Gras Savoye Prize for a Short Film Producer and Director

On Friday May 20 at the Unifrance stand on the Pantiero, the jury of the "Gras Savoye Prize for a Short Film Producer & Director," presided by Margaret Menegoz, honored Samuel Jadok for his film "Comment j’ai marché sur la lune" as well as the film's producer, Pierre-François Bernet (Butterfly Productions).

A Special Mention was also given to the director Fabrice Luang-Vija for his film "Square Couine" (produced by Les Films du Nord - Arnaud Demuynck).

As a partner of Unifrance and the French film industry, Gras Savoye wished to create an award dedicated to young producers and directors of short films, voted by a jury of industry professionals, with the aim of fostering the emergence of a new generation of film producers and directors.

Jury members:

Margaret Menegoz – Producer with Les Films du Losange – President of Unifrance
Ariane Fournier – Director of Communications at Gras Savoye
Aure Atika – Actress
Catherine Corsini – Director
Ludivine Sagnier – Actress
Emmanuel Agneray – Producer with Bizibi Productions
Bernard Bastide – Festival Organizer
Frédéric Brillion – Producer with Épithète
Roland de Chaudenay – Writer and Screenwriter
Cyril Colbeau-Justin – Producer with LGM
Mani Mortazavi – Producer with 4 A 4 Productions
Serge Riaboukine – Actor

18 short films were in the running for the Gras Savoye Prize. All these films were selected by Unifrance's Short Film Commission on the basis of those selected at least seven times in 2003 at film festivals supported by Unifrance and which had not been awarded prizes.

With this award, Gras Savoye, in association with Unifrance, expresses its desire to honor the teamwork of a young producer and director. It is a way of highlighting the vital importance of these professions in the audiovisual industry, as well as an occasion to give young directors the opportunity to gain recognition and to present their work.
