AWARDS & PRIZES

The Festival's Jury composed of 7 members from the film industry, music industry and other artistic & cultural fields, who have no relation to the films in competition, will award in each category the best films through private screenings.

The films chosen for the "Best of Future" selection by the jury will be presented to the public during monthly screenings at "Cineum Cannes". 

Note: at this stage, French subtitles will be a "must have" for all foreign language films.

The public will vote for their favorite film, best representing the Future Wave of Cinema. 
These votes are counted once a year and a "Best of Future – Audience Award" will be presented to the winner of the year at our annual event.

We will also host a Q&A with filmmakers able to attend (in-person and virtual screenings).

 

Note: CWFF does not require a World Premiere, but appreciates if you notify us if you are either a World Premiere, International or European Premiere (your first premiere outside your country of origin), National Premiere.

All Monthly Winners are automatically entered in the annual competition for a chance to receive a prestigious custom-made metal statuette, the "Golden Fairy", and the opportunity to have their film screened in Cannes, the world's capital of Cinema.

Note: we are not affiliated in any manner whatsoever with the "Festival de Cannes".

Special Prizes will be unveiled throughout the year leading up to our Annual Award Ceremony that is scheduled to take place in a Luxurious Villa in the heart of Cannes, in June 2023.
