Cannes 2006 - Grand Cru winner

At the Cannes Critics Week Award last night, the first ever Grand Cru Award for the best short film screenplay went to Esmir Filho from Brazil for Alguma Coisa Assim (Something Like That).

The Guild, through our magazine UK Writer, is a partner in the Award.

Making the presentation Claire Dixsaut, editor of La Gazette des Scénaristes, stressed how important it was for writers to get recognition at Cannes, where they are so often overlooked.

Esmir is currently working on his first feature length screenplay.
