The Cnap is expanding its partnership with Cinéma du réel on the occasion of the 40th edition of the festival

Since 2016, the Cnap has awarded the Joris Ivens/Cnap prize to one of the films participating in the International Competition section of the Festival. On the occasion of the 40th edition, the Cnap has expanded this partnership by proposing a specific programme of films and by commissioning Designer Florence Doléac to create a new model for the trophy, entitled Fais voir, meaning Let’s see in English, to be awarded to prize winners. The Cnap is also partnering with the festival for its anniversary publication.

For the fourth year in a row, the Joris Ivens/Cnap prize will recognize one of the films presented in the First Film International Competition. This year, the Cnap and Cinéma du réel have chosen artist and film-maker, Joana Hadjithomas, as the member of the jury who will award the prize.

A completely new session will enhance the partnership that already exists between Cnap,  Cinéma du réel and the FIDMarseille with the projection of the film Saints'Game, by Amélie Derlon Cordina, winner of the Cnap award at the FIDMarseille 2017. This full length film will be projected on March 31st, 2018, and preceded by the short film City of Tales by Arash Nassiri, that benefited from the support of the Image/mouvement system in 2015.

Reciprocally, the Joris Ivens/Cnap prize will this year be presented during the next edition of the FIDMarseille (July 10th -16th, 2018) in the context of this partnership.

The Cnap, in partnership with Cinéma du réel, has commissioned Florence Doléac to create a new trophy for the 10 awards that are awarded to festival prizewinners.

Entitled Fais voir, this object has a number of different sources of inspiration: from the Egyptian scepter Ouas, to the Djed pillar, by way of the Oudjat, also called the Eye of Horus. For Florence Doléac “Fais Voir is also anchored in the gesture made by children when playing, as they bring hand and eye together to discover, look at, and concentrate the real, as if through the lens of a camera. During the awards ceremony, the black glove is brandished, urging us to “look”, in a photogenic gesture that celebrates the festival’s unique identity.”

Florence Doléac is a founding member of the Radi Designers group and since 2003 has developed a solo career, while at the same time teaching design at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, in Paris. She has developed a singular body of work, located on the frontier between art and design, which speculates about function and futility, daily life and fantasy, and production and exhibition, always considering humor and irony as vectors for creation and research.
