Salomé Crickx' short film awarded at Tampere

"Se dit d'un cerf qui quitte son bois" won the Best Genre Film award at the Finnish festival this weekend.

The Tampere Film Festival is the oldest short film festival in the Scandinavian countries. Since the 1970s, its main objective has been to showcase films from around the world in national and international short film competitions. This event provides an international meeting place for professionals and film enthusiasts. The film market, launched in 1992, has become a significant event for professionals and now includes more than 3000 films. The festival also aims to promote the sale of short films and international cooperation in the field of culture, as well as perpetuate the tradition of a culturally significant local event.

Selected in the Generation XYZ competition, Salomé Crickx's short film Se dit d'un cerf qui quitte son bois won the Best Genre Film award this weekend. Produced by Rayuela Productions and internationally sold by l'Agence belge du court métrage, it had previously won the Quebec Critics' Award at the REGARD Festival in 2023.

The jury of the Generation XYZ competition commented on the short film:

"The film proposes a radical and entertaining solution to issues related to an increasingly older population. Full of surprising twists and turns, the film combines great ensemble acting and an innovative approach to an actual societal issue – all conceived within a distinct genre setting."

Salomé Crickx's film had been selected at the European Short Film Festival in Brest in 2023 and will be in competition at the Music & Cinema Festival in Marseille in April 2024.
