Cannes Grand Cru Award

Short films are the accepted way to make a splash as a director, but what about the writers? Too often scriptwriting for short films is undervalued or just ignored.

That's why the Writers' Guild has teamed up with the French Guilde des Scénaristes and screenwriting magazines across Europe to launch the Grand Cru Award at Cannes Film Festival 2006.

The Award will go to the best screenplay from short films selected for Critics Week at the Festival, with a jury chaired by Mexican screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga (The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, Amores Perros).

The Award will be presented in Cannes on 25 May and is supported by the MK2 Group, the SACD, UGS, the EICAR school of television and film, Editions Montparnasse, and Arane.
