BETWEEN SISTERS wins in Ciné-Jeune festival

Ciné-Jeune de l’Aisne is a travelling festival, with screenings in 15 cities in the entire Aisne region. The 41st edition makes it the oldest young audience festival in France, presenting its films and animations not only in cinemas but also in more atypical places like libraries, castles or museums.


The ECFA Jury handed out its prize to BETWEEN SISTERS (ENTRE DEUX SOEURS, France) by Anne-Sophie Gousset & Clément Céard. “In this movie about love and friendship, the animation and the transitions between images are simply amazing. Short and powerful!” The ECFA Jury were Sonia Le Pape (Cinema in Sneakers, Poland), Sérgio Marques (Cinema Insuflàvel, Portugal) and Anne Schultka (Children’s Film Association, Germany).

With 40 selected short films, representing a wide variety of horizons and styles, we could raise young people’s awareness about this format and illustrate the wealth of European film making,” says festival programmer Gaëlle Saillenfest. Here, you’ll find the entire festival catalogue.


One iconic section of the Ciné-Jeune festival is the Ciné-Psy screening, in which films are discussed by professional psychoanalysts. This year both COMEDY QUEEN and THE QUIET GIRL offered food for thought in debates about the identity of young teenagers.
