François Chalais Prize
|François Chalais Prize|
|Awarded for||A film dedicated to the values of journalism|
The Francois Chalais Prize (French: Prix François Chalais) is given at two main events, the Cannes Film Festival (since 1997) and the Young Reporters' Awards (since 1999). It was created to pay tribute to French journalist and film historian François Chalais, under the auspices of his wife Mei Chen. It rewards a film dedicated to the values of life affirmation and of journalism, and highlights the presence of journalists at Cannes itself. It has also offered awards for the Film Festival of Sarlat (2006-2009), and for the Scénario Honfleur (2006-2009)
