New prestigious support for this sixth edition!
The Ministry of Culture is a key player in building a more sustainable world and a peaceful society that recognizes the diversity of talent. Its many initiatives include support for artistic creation, the higher education of architects, designers and artists, the promotion of sustainable and quality architecture, the protection of historical heritage and sites.
All cultural institutions work together on the Sustainable Development mission; the administration, the regional directorates of cultural affairs, public institutions in their vast variety of trades (museums, castles and estates, theaters, opera houses, dance schools, Art and architecture). Each institution is built upon sustainability; Saving valuable and scarce resources, re-uses and recycles, transports and exchanges, and work together in an ecosystem. The Sustainable Development mission stimulates, animates, coordinates, encourages and highlights all these initiatives.
The field of cinema is essential in building a sustainable society and holds a strong influence on the many audiences it attracts; by the imagination it arouses, by the economic weight it possesses and by the openness to the originality and diversity of the world it offers. For this reason, we found it important to forge a partnership between the Festival and the Ministry of Culture. In addition to a workshop on these subjects, we offer a Special Prize; "Culture and Sustainable Development". The prize will be awarded for a work that is imaginative, creative and original in its tone and form. We are looking for an artist's point of view and vision of a culture at the heart of sustainable development.
