Spotlight on the 20th edition of the Unifrance Short Film Awards

Inventive and daring, sometimes “objects of curiosity”, and benefiting from our unfailing support, French short films have always been able to conquer festivals and international markets. We are convinced that this will not change for the last 2022 harvest of titles selected for the Unifrance Short Film Awards, and we hope that for their directors and producers, this spotlight will help pave the way for exceptional international careers.

The 2022 selection includes 22 titles, including 6 first films, directed by 15 female directors and 12 male directors, featuring a diversity of styles, moods and themes that have the ability to surprise, amaze, question and to leave no one indifferent.
