The prize-giving ceremony of the festival of short films “Le Temps Presse”, which has been supported by the Monegasque Cooperation since its first edition, took place on January 9 at the Hôtel de Ville in Paris.

Co-chaired by Muhammad Yunus, inventor of microcredit and Nobel Peace Prize winner, and director Wim Wenders, this sixth edition rewarded six short films based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Among the prizes awarded by the Monaco Government, the Children’s Prize attracted more than 1,000 students aged 8 to 14, enrolled in Monaco and in the partner institutions of the Monegasque Cooperation in Madagascar, Burundi, Senegal, Tunisia and Mali. The animated film “The Change” by Fabian Ribezzo, about the solidarity of an African tribe in the face of climate change, aroused the enthusiasm of young audiences.

The students of Sciences Po Paris-Middle Eastern Mediterranean Campus in Menton awarded their prize to the short film “Out of the Village” by Jonathan Stein, which deals with the effects of the Ebola epidemic on human relationships.

Finally, the Women’s Prize was awarded to the director Daniel Montanarini for her film “The Arrival” on women becoming mother. The jury president was HSH Princess Stephanie. (Feature photo: Palais Princier de Monaco)
