The award ceremony for the short film festival Le Temps Presse, which has been supported by Monaco’s Official Development Assistance entities since it was first launched, took place on 9 January at the Hotel de Ville in Paris. Co-chaired by Muhammad Yunus, the pioneer behind microcredit and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and filmmaker Wim Wenders, the sixth festival rewarded six short films about the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations.

Among the prizes supported by the Prince’s Government, the Children’s Prize gathered votes from more than a thousand pupils aged between eight and 14 at schools in the Principality and partner schools of Monaco’s Official Development Assistance entities in Madagascar, Burundi, Senegal, Tunisia and Mali. It was Fabien Ribezzo’s animated film The Change, about the solidarity of an African tribe confronted with climate change, which caught the interest of the young audience.

Students from the Sciences Po Paris Middle Eastern and Mediterranean Campus in Menton awarded their prize to the short feature Out of the Village by Jonathan Stein, which looks at the impact of the Ebola epidemic on human relationships.

Finally, the Women’s Prize, selected by a jury chaired by H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie, was awarded to director Daniel Montanarini for his film The Arrival on the decision of women to become mothers.
