64th Festival de Cannes Cinéfondation Award Winners

A few minutes ago, the Cinéfondation and Short Films Jury presided by Michel Gondry awarded the three prizes that the section gives to three short films and here they are.

First Prize: Der Brief (The Letter), Doroteya Droumeva, Germany, 30’ – School: German Film and Television Academy Berlin

Second Prize: Drari, Kamal Lazraq, France, 39’ - School: La Fémis, France

Third Prize: Ya-Gan-Bi-Hang (Fly By Night), Son Tae-gyum, South Korea, 21’ - School: Chung-ang University, South Korea

Can’t help but be glad that a female director got the top award –and top money prize- that definitively will help this “filmmaker of the future” to continue her work as a student and forward. Her short definitively is must be seen for me. Great! But also second and third prize seems to be shorts worth watching.
