110 projets issus de 57 pays (production et coproduction) ont répondu à l'appel à projets public. La sélection a pris en considération non seulement la qualité des propositions en termes d'histoire, de narration et de production, mais aussi l'urgence des sujets et le potentiel des campagnes d'impact.

Nous sommes fiers de la diversité des projets sélectionnés. Les 25 projets proviennent de 22 pays (en tenant compte des territoires de production et de coproduction) d'Afrique, d'Asie, d'Europe et des Amériques. 52% des films ont été réalisés par des femmes. Les sujets couvrent un large éventail des questions les plus urgentes de notre temps : de l'égalité des genre à la paix et à la justice sociale, de l'action climatique aux droits LGBTIQ+, de l'éducation à l'activisme des jeunes, pour n'en citer que quelques-uns.
