The International Competition is reserved to 1st, 2nd and 3rd film. The jury and the audience award several cash prizes, including the Grand Prix for Best Feature Film with 8,000 Euros to the director, Ciné + Distribution Support Award with 15,000 Euros (purchase of rights) to the French distributor of the film, the Grand Prix for Best Short Film with 3,500 Euros to the director, and the Audience Award for a Feature film with 3,000 Euros for the director.
