The Animation that Matters Awards 2017 go to “Junod” by Shinichiro Kimura,  “Release from Heaven” by Ali Noori Oskouei and “Iqbal by Michel Fuzellier and Babak Payami

These prizes recognise the positive values and messages in movies that matter and make us grow as human beeings. The inspiration came to Bruno Chatelin from his Columbia TriStar days (Sony) when David Puttnam initiated that catch line for the Studio he was running.
“Bruno Chatelin commented: listening to David’s vision, it struck me a lot at this time, , and I think that today’s world needs even more films of these calibers. I am also impressed to see Cannes welcome such initiatives as Positive Cinema week, Better World Forum, Festival Sacred for Beauty, with Wim Wenders in town with Mgnr Dario Vigano (prefect of communication for Vatican) coming to Cannes with a message from the pope.”

Yonathan Parienti  ( CEO) , Laurie Gordon (Founder of Montreal International Animation Film Festival) and Bruno Chatelin (founder of and Animation Day in Cannes) will remit the prizes at Cine Arts Gallery Grand Hotel Gardens.
