LA CINEF Selection
The object of LA CINEF, an Official Selection of the Festival de Cannes, is to present and highlight films from film schools, whether fiction or animation, that reveal talent and deserve encouragement.
Unless a special dispensation is granted, films must comply with the following conditions in order to be selected:
- they have been made during the 18 months preceding the Festival;
- they have not been presented at major international festivals;
- they do not exceed 60 minutes in running-time.
N.B.: Documentaries are not accepted.
To submit a film, fill in the application form and upload your film online.
The registration deadline is February 15th, 2022 at the latest (by this date, the entry form must have been filled out and the film uploaded).
LA CINEF awards will be designated by an international jury comprising a minimum of four personalities.
Each Jury member votes by secret ballot. Decisions will be reached by absolute majority of the votes at the first two ballots and by relative majority vote at the following ballots.
These prizes may only include one joint (ex-æquo) award. Unless a special waiver is granted, this rule cannot apply to the first prize.
The Jury designates three awards.
The winners will receive a €15,000 grant for the First Prize, €11,250 for the Second and €7,500 for the Third.
In case of a joint award, the amount will be divided equally.
The credits of the first feature film of the winners of LA CINEF prizes will include the mention that they have been made with the support of the Festival de Cannes.
Films screened at La Cinef agree to use the "2022 Official Selection – La Cinef" logotype of the Festival de Cannes on all publicity, What is more, when publicising awards, the award winners and distribution companies agree to use the exact wording of the awards as set out in the logo guidelines of the Festival de Cannes.
