The Prince’s Government has awarded two prizes in the seventh edition of the Short Film Festival, Le Temps Presse, on the topic of Sustainable Development Goals.
The ceremony took place on Thursday, January 4, 2018, at the City Hall of Paris, in the presence of many leading figures from culture and sport.
As the partner of the Le Temps Presse (“Time is Running Out”) from its first edition, the Prince’s Government aims to raise awareness among young people of major global issues.
The Children’s Prize was awarded according to the votes of 3,000 students in Monaco, France and in the countries in which the Monegasque Cooperation is involved in aid programmes.
The winner was the animated film “The Present” by Jacob Frey, on the theme of disability, which has sparked huge enthusiasm among young audiences. The trophy was presented by Isabelle Rosabrunetto, Director-General of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, in the presence of several members of the jury, including two students from Charles III College.
The Student Award, created by the Directorate of International Cooperation, was awarded to the short film “Kapitalistis” by Pablo Munoz-Gomez, which, with humour, deals with the nonsense of our consumer society. The jury for this prize was made up of students from Sciences Po Paris, Menton Campus, (a partner of the Prince’s Government) and other institutions of higher education in France.
Finally, the Women’s Prize, which has been decided by the Princess Stephanie jury for several years, was awarded to director Viktor Miletic for his film “Bouge pas” (Don’t Move) on the hot topic of harassment.
The Prince Albert II Foundation also participated in the Festival as a jury member for the Rivers and Oceans Award.
