CourtsCarouge is a short-film competition open to all those with a passion for images. 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.

For this 7th edition of the Short-Films Competition of the Printemps carougeois, women are placed in the centre of creation. Women in all their facets, interwoven points of view, women’s perspectives, numerous stories, singular accounts, upside down slices of life - the angles of attack in addressing this theme may well surprise the jury of this edition. To participate, just create a film on the theme (essay, documentary, fiction or animation) of three minutes maximum, with the aid of one’s smartphone. The deadline for participation in the competition is 15 August 2020, at midnight.
