The 24th edition took place from June 3 to 12, 2022 and, for the first time in the history of the festival, the award ceremonies took place at the Studio cinemas in Tours. And it was a very beautiful moment, very sweet, very hot!
That day, we had the joy of seeing an audience, mingling with the jurors present, sharing a drink or a slice of local produce, program in hand, smiles on their faces, stars in their eyes. The spectators, under the spell of these films in such a short format, showed so much joy and pleasure in sharing this moment of cinema that it is enough for us to be happy. It was the same all around the world where the festival was welcomed: the public was also conquered.
The screening of our selection Paroles de femmes was held in Paris on June 8 at the cinema Les 7 parnassiens. We were delighted to welcome Katie Byford, winner of the Women's Rights Award, for her film You look fine. The British director crossed the Channel to receive her award and, by her own admission, had an unforgettable experience: "The magic of my experience in Paris has stayed with me, and will stay with me for a very long time," she wrote. I could not have imagined a more wonderful 24 hours. I was deeply moved by the reception my film received."
