À PREMIÈRE VUE 2023 awards ceremony took place on July 5 as part of the 34th edition of FIDMarseille, a festival that supports the first films and accompanies students’ films and visual art.

Hosted in the auditorium of the Mucem - Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations, the awards ceremony for the three winners was followed by the screening of a selection of short films in the presence of a large audience.
