Talent Village Award

The award is a €2.000 award granted by our partner UniversCiné to support the development of a project from the Talent Village selection.
This year, the award is granted to the project Not Coming Out by Pascal Schuh.
The jury was composed of Georges Goldenstern (former director of the Cinéfondation) and Julie Billy (producer at June Films).

The Jury’s motivation to this grant is the following:
"We were seduced by the singularity of one particular project. We were moved by the way the director is telling the story and by the very modern way he looks at an unknown historical moment of our European history. Through this film we discovered how homosexuality was considered in East Germany before the fall of the wall and the complex emotions that the LGBTQI+ community faced while the unification was starting. This film is intimate and political and we would like to reward its great ambition."

A special mention is attributed to the project The Shame of the Borbély Family by Kálmán Nagy.

The Jury’s motivation to this mention is the following:
"We would like to give a special mention to a first feature project that striked us in its very mature and tense writing. The director showed in his previous film his ability to dissect the complexity of the human soul and his first feature will be a strong family tragedy."


ArteKino International Award

Consisting in €6.000, it is granted to the best project of the Coproduction Village.
In 2022, the award is granted to The Visitor by Vytautas Katkus, produced by M-Films (Lithuania).

The Jury’s motivation to this grant is the following:
"For this 2022 edition, the ArteKino International Award supports a first feature by a director walking the line between fiction and documentary, social realism and fantastic poetry, with a subtle balance that he has demonstrated in his already very mastered short films."

The jury was composed of Rémi Burah (President of ArteKino Foundation and CEO of Arte France Cinema).



The selected work-in-progress projects will be eligible for the TITRAFILM Award, worth 10.000 euros in image/sound post-production services
This year, it is granted to the project Rossosperanza directed by Annarita Zambrano, produced by Mad Entertainment (Italy), Rai Cinema (Italy), TS Productions (France) and Minerva Pictures (Italy).
The Jury’s motivation to this grant is the following:
"First of all, we wanted to thank Jeremy and his whole team for this inspiring and diverse selection. Really, it was a difficult choice, as we had a lot of very good projects to choose from, so in the end, we decided to honor the work of a free-spirited and ambitious director and give the TitraFilm Award to "a crazy film full of blood and hope": Rossosperanza by Annarita Zambrano."

The jury was composed of Ava Cahen (General Delegate, Cannes Critics’ Week), Louisa Dent (Managing Director, Curzon Artificial Eye) and Ursula Meier (Director).


Alphapanda Audience Engagement Award

Alphapanda attributes to one project an award of €5.000 - composed of €600 of advertising spend and €4.400 in-kind to develop a digital marketing strategy and implement a social media campaign around the awarded film’s festival premiere.

The award is granted to Veni Vidi Vici by Daniel Hoesl & Julia Niemann, produced by Ulrich Seidl Filmproduktion (Austria).

The Jury’s motivation for this grant is the following:
"The jury was impressed by the strong aesthetics and the striking message of the film. We have no doubts that the film will succeed in its intention to have an impact on audiences and change the passive way we all relate to the scandalous division of wealth and power in our society. Social media seems like the perfect platform for this film and for the discussions that will arise thanks to it."

The jury was composed of Florence Gastaud (producer at Wild Bunch), Mathias Noschis (Film Marketing Strategist and Founder of Alphapanda) and Joanna Solecka (Film Marketing & Social Media Strategist, Audience Design Trainer and Head of Alphapanda's office in Warsaw).


22D Music Award
For the second time, Les Arcs Industry Village has the great pleasure to collaborate with 22D to provide a prize of €10.000 for Music Composition. This award will be dedicated to the financing of the production of an original composition (€5.000 cash and €5.000 in the form of an executive production service). The financing will be supported by a follow-up and monitoring at the music publishing level.

The award is granted to the project Hunters on a White Field by Sarah Gyllenstierna, produced by MostAlice Film AB (Sweden).

The Jury’s motivation to this grant is the following:
"We have decided to support the film directed by Sarah Gyllenstierna. The story of three ordinary men, who let their primitive pulsions take over during a hunting weekend; this dark and absurd drama, perhaps visionary, touched us. What happens when death becomes an obsessional game? The sound dimension of the film, and in particular the original score will be essential to underline the different psychological states that the three characters will experience."

The jury was composed of: Ludovic Bource (Composer), Emmanuel Delétang (22D Music CEO) and Laëtitia Pansanel-Garric (Composer).

Producers Network

Two Producers Network badges are attributed to two Industry Village producers : Jelena Angelovski - Meander Film (Montenegro) and Katarína Krnáčová - Silverart (Slovakia).

The Producers Network is the go-to place for producers seeking to make the most out of their time in Cannes. Launched 15 years ago, the Producers Network welcomes more than 500 producers from all around the world for a series of meetings and unique events specifically designed to create opportunities to build your peer network and get international co-production projects off the ground.

Coproduction & Sustainability Workshop


On Monday December 12th, at Les Arcs Film Festival took place the “Coproduction & Sustainability” Workshop.

This workshop mixed experts (producers with specific knowledge regarding sustainable shootings, eco-managers and film funds) and producers attending les Arcs and eager to participate in the workshop. The workshop was organized in partnership with EAVE.

The workshop started with a general introduction, and short presentations on different schemes / initiatives: a presentation of Virtual Production by Joost DeVries (ApostLab, The Netherlands), a presentation of Austria's new Green Incentive by Alexander Dumreicher-Ivanceanu (Amour fou, Austria), and of Green Film by Alberto Battochi (Trentino Film Fund and Commission).

The group was divided into three workgroups each one addressing different themes:

  • Financing, and how it affects the organization of the coproduction in a sustainable way
  • Green shooting and sustainable post-production on an international coproduction
  • Communication, a key aspect when dealing with sustainability

Part of the conclusions drawn from the workshop experience and workgroups can be found here and in the videos below.

Green Charter for Film Festivals


Les Arcs Film Festival & Les Arcs Industry Village animated a workshop with a presentation of ISO 20121 certification, and on how to implement the Green Charter for Film Festivals. Three experts were present to animate this workshop : Mathieu Delahousse (Secoya), Matthieu de Bannière (ATNA) and Ludovica Chiarini (EcoMuvi). 

As event organizers and cultural actors, film festivals have a responsibility to sensitization of the audience and professionals on social issues. Climate change has become the most important challenge of our society, and it leads us to change our practices in order to lower the impact on the environment of film festivals we organize.
A Green Charter has been worked on, to set up a common basis of analysis, aiming at defining processes and methods of data collection, that will be necessary to draw strategies and define goals to achieve in the coming years. The Green Charter is seen as a first step of more general collective move within the film festival circuit.
For more information or to stay tuned on this charter, please do not hesitate to visit the website and to subscribe to the information list:

Refuge 2030


In the night of December 13th to December 14th, les Arcs Film Festival gathered for a snowshoe hike and a night in a mountain hut a group of 12 people consisting in environmental activists, foresight specialists journalists, and professionals from the movie industry, to allow them to reflect together during on ideas for action in favor of a more sober and more desirable cinema. It was organized in collaboration with l’ADN and Samuel Valensi from The Shift Project.

Following the workshop, the participants decided to launch the “Collective 5%”, which refers to the Paris Agreement for climate change signed in 2015. The 176 parties that are signatories (175 countries and the European Union committed to reduce by 5% per year greenhouse gas emissions in order to achieve carbon neutrality in 2050. The “Collective 5%” (also referring in a way to the 50/50 collective for parity and diversity) aims at taking into account environmental issued in the cinema industry.

The newly launched collective claim that we need to act and take responsibility as we now know:

  • that all of our activities are more than 80% dependent on fossil fuels, the scarcity
  • of which is predicted and whose effects on the climate are long-term.
  • that the climate crisis and the collapse of biodiversity are underway.
  • that science attributes the responsibility to human activities.
  • that cinema is a human activity which must also be transformed.
  • The film industry emits, in France alone, several million tonnes of CO2 equivalent.
  • The operation of movie theaters alone represents nearly one million tons of CO2 equivalent in France only. These emissions are almost entirely related to transport, in particular the movement of spectators to the cinemas, but also to the food and energy consumption of these places.
  • During a festival, it is enough for 3% of those present to come by plane for them to be responsible for almost all of the emissions related to the transport of people for the event.
  • Nearly a third of the data consumed on the Internet is attributable to our industry, while digital technology alone represents 4% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

We therefore wish to commit our industry to compliance with the Paris agreements and the National Low Carbon Strategy, i.e. the reduction of its greenhouse gas emissions by 5% per year and the achievement of the carbon neutrality in 2050. It is time for the cinema, to preserve its ability to unite and make people dream, entertain and make people think, to undertake a profound change.

The collective will publish in the coming weeks a charter and has already identified three types of concrete actions:

  • organize initial and ongoing training for all professionals in the sector on energy, climate and biodiversity issues. Knowing the impact of our activities will enable everyone to act consciously;
  • a commitment to measure, monitor and make public its impacts, in particular its carbon impact, across the entire value chain (writing, production and filming, distribution, DVD and Blu-ray publishing, exhibition, festivals, broadcasting, etc.);
  • the promotion of cinematographic works that will be able to address the issues of ecological transition both through the stories they convey on screen and through their ability to reinvent their mode of production, distribution and dissemination in the light of energy and climate issues in our time.

The collective 5% will at first be active in France but aims at expanding its activities. If you're French-speaking, you may read more and contact the collective here


Talent Village Music Pitch


The Talent Village aims to encourage the rise of a new generation of daring and ambitious film directors, as well as guiding them in the process of creation of their first feature film. Four composers are invited, in partnership with La Sacem, to work on a score proposal for the directors' feature projects.

After weeks working closely together, this year's composers and directors had the opportunity to present the music scores they have specially created for two of the Talent Village feature films projects in Les Arcs. 

TikTok tools for Film Promotion


On December 11th, Eric Garandeau presented how TikTok can help to promote films, including independent films. Joanna Solecka and Arash T. Riahi (producer) also presented the TikTok campaign for the film Eismayer by David Wagner (Austria), producer by Golden Girls Films.
