AwardsGrand Prize of FIGRA, Special Prize of Jury, Prize of Public

FIGRA (International festival of major current affairs reports and social documentaries) is an annual festival of documentary films and the corresponding festival award. It has been held since 1993 in March–April in Le Touquet-Paris-Plage in northern France.[1]


The film festival was founded by Georges Marque-Bouaret in 1993. The festival's main theme revolves around pressing social issues uncovered by the reporters themselves, who also serve as directors. In this way, according to the founder, they have the opportunity to "step out of the shadows" of the press organizations they work for.[2]

In 2016, the festival took place from 30 March to 3 April.

Main Prize

  • Grand Prize FIGRA for a film with a duration of 40 minutes or more
  • Grand Prize FIGRA for a film under 40 minutes
