Valérie GERBAULT, General Delegate of the CMCA unveiled the program for the new edition of PriMed during the press conference on Thursday, October 27 at the Hôtel de Région, in the presence of Nathalie FEDI, First Vice-President Commission for Youth, Student Life and Intergenerational Links of the South Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur Region.
The occasion to remind that PriMed has been developing for several years a program of Euro-Mediterranean citizenship education through images. Created by the CMCA, the Prix des Jeunes de la Méditerranée allows nearly 3,000 high school students from the Region Sud, Canada and other countries in the Mediterranean basin (Algeria, Egypt, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia) to become jurors of the PriMed festival. After watching three documentaries in class, the students will meet at the Alcazar, the Mucem and the Artplexe Canebière to debate and vote for their favorite film. High school students will also be able to exchange different points of view, reflect on the construction of a common future and learn together the rules of democracy.

This year, the CMCA received 427 films from 39 countries. 22 films were selected for the PriMed. 11 films are directed or co-directed by women. Find here the statistics about the registered films.

The PriMed 2022 offers the Marseille public 30 hours of free screenings in the presence of the directors at the Bibliothèque l’Alcazar, at the Mairie du 1&7 and at the Mucem. 12 awards will be attributed during the Award Ceremony organized on Friday December 10 from 4:30 p.m. at the Artplexe Canebière cinema.
