AND THE SACRAMENTO AWARDS GO TO...
Our 10th Winter Short Film Screening featuring the 2017 CÉSAR NOMINATED SHORTS (ANIMATION and LIVE ACTION categories) was held at the Crest Theatre on Saturday, February 25, the day after the official 41st César Ceremony (French Academy Awards).
Our audience was invited to vote for their favorites in the two categories.The rule was simple, to be elligible to vote, audience members needed to stay till the end of the screening and watch ALL the films! The results?
Our audience voted for CELUI QUI A DEUX ÂMES (HE WHO HAS TWO SOULS) by FABRICE LUANG-VIJA in the animated category and for MAMAN(S)[MOTHER(S)] by MAÏMOUNA DOUCOURÉ in the live action category!
Did Sacramento agree with the
French Academy Awards on the winners?...
On Friday February 24, in Paris CELUI QUI A DEUX ÂMES (HE WHO HAS TWO SOULS) by FABRICE LUANG-VIJA received the 2017 CÉSAR for BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM.
While MAMAN(S) [MOTHER(S)] by MAÏMOUNA DOUCOURÉ & VERS LA TENDRESSE (TOWARDS TENDERNESS) by ALICE DIOP both shared the 2017 CÉSAR for BEST SHORT FILM.
