The next edition of CourtsCarouge will explore secrets in all their forms: secret gardens, alcove secrets, unacknowledged secrets, family secrets, kitchen secrets, children's secrets and secret codes. We hope it will be a great opportunity to explore the power of secrets in storytelling and artistic creation, and to embark on a quest for truth! 

To enter the competition, simply submit your short (film, documentary, fiction or animation) via the online platform by midnight on April 1, 2024, for a maximum film length of three minutes.

The entries will be screened at the Printemps carougeois opening evening on Wednesday April 24 at the Cinéma Bio, with a prize-giving ceremony by the President of the Jury.

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.
