For the ninth edition of CourtsCarouge, it is on the theme of the head in the stars that the directors will imagine their creation. According to the definition, the expression "to have the head in the stars" is used to describe a person who is a little disconnected from reality, even dreamy! So for this edition, explore your dreams, your inner world, your intimate space, your universe. And if you feel like it, start from the infinitely small to talk about the infinitely big, the cosmos. The sky is the limit.

To participate, all you have to do is create a film (essay, documentary, fiction or animation) of maximum three minutes on the theme, using your smartphone. The deadline for entering the competition is midnight on 25 April 2022.


Through the competition the Printemps carougeois aims to:

  • offer to all the opportunity of trying their hand at making a film;
  • stimulate audio-visual and digital creation;
  • reveal talents;
  • provide a showcase presenting Carouge, Swiss and international short films;
  • encourage meetings and discussions between film buffs and a jury of professionals;
  • develop creativity and critical thinking on images.
