Women Inmates' Award

Women Inmate's Award

Every year, the Joliette institution provides a jury of five prisoners. The women screen eight films from the festival’s program and award a prize to one of them, presented at the November festival’s closing ceremony. In 2019, the Women Inmates’ Award was given to the movie nîpawistamâsowin : nous nous lèverons by Tasha Hubbard.
