Défi 48h Très Court Environment 2023

The 5th edition of the Défi 48h 2023 is open!


Two days to give your voice
Whether in live action or animation, the registered teams will have to script, edit and deliver their film of less than 4 minutes, in only 48 hours and respecting 4 constraints. At the launch of this ecological and civic challenge, on June 2, 2023 at 7:00 p.m., the candidate teams will be informed simultaneously of this year's theme as well as the object, character and sentence to be placed.

Live action or animation?
We encourage audiovisual creation in all its forms! Whether in live action, drawing, 3D or even stop motion, the participating teams will have the same constraints, with one exception: for animated films, the sentence can be written without being spoken.

The Avant l'Orage duo to support you
Camille Etienne, climate and social justice activist and spokesperson for the On Est Prêt movement, and Solal Moisan, director and screenwriter, form the duo Avant l'Orage, which raises public awareness of the environmental cause through documentary fiction. These two artists are sponsoring the event and supporting you in this 48-hour Challenge, which echoes their first feature film, Pourquoi on se bat, broadcast in April on TV5 Monde.

A Challenge on the big screen
The finalist films will be screened at the Cinémas Studio in Tours on Saturday, June 10, 2023 during a festive evening. A prize-giving ceremony will be organized after the screenings, in the presence of the members of the Jury, whose names will be revealed very soon. A second screening will be scheduled at the Lux-Scène nationale in Valence on June 22. It will be followed by a crazy evening at the Brewpub La Barrack in Valence.

And what do you win?
You win an unforgettable experience: two unique days of creation, adrenaline, sharing and the opportunity to highlight your commitments. But the Défi 48h Très Court Environnement also includes many prizes:

  • The CNC/Talent Grand Prize: a 3 000€ writing residency grant

So let's let Éva Navaux, member of the Jury of the Défi 48h in 2022, speak: "This kind of festival is a lot of people to either start in animation, or to give themselves opportunities, and it's a real chance. These are times that we would never allow ourselves in other circumstances. And if it wasn't for this investment and all these people behind it, there are probably a lot of people, some of whom are award winners, who would never let their creativity slip away during moments like this where they are told "okay, you have 48 hours, go ahead and show what you can do". Thank you very much for allowing all these creators to have breathing space to create. These are really beautiful moments, full of encounters."
