The Festival Le Temps Presse , supported by the Prince’s Government since its creation in France in 2011, moved this year to Geneva for the first Swiss edition, which took place February 26-28.

This short film competition, part of a committed approach to “citizen cinema”, presents films from around the world, in connection with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations.

Each year, Le Temps Presse (Time is Running Out) awards several prizes, including the Student Prize and the Children’s Prize, for which the Principality is particularly committed.

For the occasion of this first Swiss edition, HE Lanteri, Ambassador, Permanent Representative of the Principality to the UN Office in Geneva, awarded the Students Prize to director Pablo Munoz-Gomez for his film “Kapitalistis”, which deals with humour, the absurdness of our society’s consumerism.
