For its tenth edition, CourtsCarouge proposes to explore rites and rituals, a rich and fascinating theme, with a desire to question the meaning of these practices within our society. How do they give rhythm to our year, but also to our daily life? Why do they constitute our personal and cultural identity? Do rites and rituals still have an importance and a place in our lives? To participate in the contest, it's simple, submit your short (film or animation) via the online platform until April 4, 2023, midnight for a film of three minutes maximum.

The films will be screened during the opening night of the Printemps carougeois, on Thursday May 4 at the Cinéma Bio, with a presentation of the prizes 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.
