In 2016 director Lisa Azuelos launches her organization Ensemble contre la gynophobie (Together against gynophobia), referring to violence that is directed against a woman because she is a woman or that affects women disproportionately.
To change mindsets on this issue, the charity organizes an international short films’ competition supported by the Kering Foundation.
Short films of less than 5 minutes, weather fiction or documentaries, aiming at changing mentalities will be presented.
Members of the association Ensemble contre la gynophobie and people from the industry of cinema will be a part of the jury.
The winner will receive an award during the 69th Cannes Film Festival on May 16.
