The Festival chose to give its main awards despite its cancellation. The juries for feature and short films were able to watch the movies of the competitions at home and deliberated in video conference.
Rendez-vous here on Sunday 29th March at 18:00 for the award ceremony in video.
FIFF would like to thank wholeheartedly the members of the jurys for accepting to fill their task despite a very complicated lockdown situation.
The members of the jury for the International competition: Short films – Julie Hugo, Michael Frei, and the president Mélanie Croubalian – award the prize for Best international short film which is sponsored by Clinique Générale Ste-Anne. It comes with a cash prize of CHF 7500.- given out to the director of the awarded movie.
