The 12th Festival du Film Vert is ended. This year, the Festival has further expanded its program: in no less than 55 different venues, in French-speaking Switzerland but also in France, it has been possible to attend the 239 sessions on the program, from 1 March to 9 April.
Greenpeace, partner of the Festival since 2009 and FEDEVACO have made their choices among the fifty films programmed and has awarded their prizes.
Their verdicts are:
Futur d’espoir: an inspiring film
Greenpeace has chosen to prize Guillaume Thébault’s documentary Futur d’espoir, which immediately distinguished itself by its local relevance, the freshness and the humor that emerge from it.
“The curious young filmmaker, passionate and self-taught, has produced a captivating and inspiring documentary. Finally, the lucid and authentic testimony of a committed man”.
The True Cost: the hidden face of fashion
For the second consecutive year, the Fédération vaudoise de coopération has joined forces with the Festival du Film Vert, presenting a special North-South Prize. This year, The True Cost, directed by Andrew Morgan, seduced the jury. “This documentary takes a disturbing look at the clothing industry and questions our consumption habits.”
