​On the same day, we will organize special screenings of some of the Annual Grand Winners at a famous theater in Cannes

Nominees for our 2021 Edition will be announced at the end of January 2022.

  *** Every Month We'll Assign Honorable Mention Awards For Each Category ***

The "Honorable Mention" is an extra distinction of the official competition. 

That is to say, the Jury does not intervene, it is granted exclusively by the directors of the Festival. Here, the film that has distinguished itself from the others will be awarded, in its general aspect, concept, aesthetics, and/or particularly brilliant performance, in its direction, photography, acting, editing, and/or soundtrack.
