Shéhérazade, the feature debut by Jean-Bernard Marlin, was singled out by the Jean Vigo Award jury “for the exceptional direction of its actors, and for the understated but sustained lyricism that it injects into the gritty realism of its lovers in the Marseille night”.

The second feature by Yann GonzalezKnife + Heart, was rewarded “for the attentive and tender way it turns its gaze upon the antiquated and delicate charm of genre cinema, and the artful way it manages to portray its visual and poetic power”. The feature, produced by Charles Gillibert for CG Cinéma together with Mexico’s Piano and Switzerland’s Garidi Films, and co-produced by Arte France Cinéma, Le Fresnoy and RTS, will be released in France on 27 June by Memento Films DistributionKinology is in charge of its international sales.
