Parallel Competition

With its four categories and five programs, the Parallel Competition highlights emerging creators, independent films and voices that are often underrepresented. In addition to the unmissable Tourner à Tout Prix, 100% Régions et Americana programs, a new competition for queer films and filmmakers is being added: Pluriel.les. To double the pleasure, for the first time this year we are dedicating an entire evening to films in the Tourner à tout prix competition to highlight independent talents, increasing with each passing year. The Parallel Competition jury will have the task of awarding a prize for each of the four categories; the Audience Prize of over than $45,000 in cash and services will be offered to the film with the most votes.
