As a channel covering territories, popular culture and local interest, France 3, its regional channels, and FranceTV slash, the young adult’s media from France Televisions are mobilizing for the fifth edition of the Filme ton quartier competition.
This competition, open to everyone French-speaking from the age of 16, promotes access to the world of television and digital media, celebrates the diversity of France, the Francophonie and highlights new talents.
Set up by the documentary unit of France televisions and Francetv SLASH, in association with the Fondation Engagement Médias pour les Jeunes, TV5MONDE and in partnership with the platforms MOUV and YARD media, the competition this year is to make a documentary of 3.5 minutes max. on the theme "To be 20 years old".
What does it mean to you to be 20 years old in the midst of a global pandemic, in an ever-changing world?
A fragile daily life, uncertain dreams or the best age of your life, against all odds?
Rocking moment (s)? Connections, disconnection or reconnection? Perhaps the beginnings of engagement in life and/or the struggles to re-enchant the world?
Or a whole different story… Tell us.
Whatever your age, explore your neighbourhood, your city or your village, your mountains or your beaches, shoot and send your films.
