LIGHTS ON WOMEN AWARD Short Film Award In Cannes Film Festival
LIGHTS ON WOMEN AWARDS
As an Official Partner of the Cannes Film Festival for over 25 years, L'Oréal Paris has always been a feminist brand, particularly in the film industry thanks to its privileged relationship with emblematic actresses who embody the brand's values.
Thanks to the flexibility of its format, the short film has long been considered to reflect the future of cinema. With this new programme, L'Oréal Paris is taking its feminist commitment one step further: by supporting them with funding, the brand wants to help young women directors overcome the obstacles that will stand in their way and encourage them to follow through on their creative ambitions.
Portraits of the writter/director Aleksandra Odić. This portrait aims to highlight the subject of the film, to share Aleksandra's vision, and to understand her approach as a filmmaker. We therefore accompanied Aleksandra for a day in order to see, bring out and share her personality. We also conducted an interview with Aleksandra on camera in order to gather her vision.
