American Short Wins Cinéfondation Prize At Cannes

The Cinéfondation and Short Films Jury, headed by New-Zealander director Jane Campion and including Maji-da Abdi, Nicoletta Braschi, Nandita Das and Semih Kaplanoğlu, has awarded the 2013 Cinéfondation First Prize to Anahita Ghazvinizadeh from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago for her short film Needle. The ceremony, held in the Buñuel Theatre in Cannes, was followed by the screening of the winning films.

The Cinéfondation Selection consisted of 18 student films, chosen out of nearly 1 550 entries coming from 277 film schools around the world

The Cinéfondation was created in 1998 by the Festival de Cannes to inspire and support the next generation of international filmmakers. Since then, with the help of the Festival, the Cinéfondation has developed complementary programmes to help achieve its goal.
