21 June 2021

(ANS - Paris) – The 15th edition of "Festiclip", the short film festival organized by the Salesian Province "France-South Belgium" (FRB), took place on Saturday, 5 June 2021. With participants connecting via web, the finale saw 11 teams competing to win various prizes.

The jury, made up of 5 people from different backgrounds, had organized two evenings to view all the competing short films and get to know each team in person. The final deliberations were not easy, given the very high quality level of the films and also because of the many conversations with the young people, who witnessed the beauty of participating in this festival: many praised the bonds created during this experience, the learning received in teamwork, the atmosphere created in the class, in the group, the changes brought about by this magnificent adventure ...

After an evening well conducted by the two presenters and interspersed with amusing skits, with the young people who, despite the distances and the screens to mediate, participated with great confidence and joy, the prizes were awarded.

The Audience Award went to the "San Pedro" Salesian Institute in Seville, Spain, for the short film "Why not". Marcos, who lives among pleasures, friends, parties and social networks, has a meeting that makes him embark on a different path.

The Jury Awards went to:

  • The “Don Bosco” Vocational Training High School in Pirae, in Tahiti, for the video “The alarm clock”. As a young man lives his life to the fullest, a sad truth will open his eyes forever.
  • The “Saint Joseph the Worker” Vocational Training Center in Žilina, Slovakia, for the video “Bridge”. The story is about a young girl and her big dream. She is supported by her friends but her dream is different from the ideas her father has for her.

The Award for the best soundtrack went to the “Costa de Beauregard” boarding school, Chambéry, for the video “The Pressures”. Aurore dreams of becoming a figure skater, but her parents encourage her to study hard, instead, to ensure her professional stability.

The “Thunderstruck” award went to the Campus de Pouillé, in Les Ponts de Cé, for the short film “The editorial board”.
