10 years of partnership

Partner of the Festival since 2012, the Inalco jury awards the Prix Mondes en regards at the Festival, which recognizes one of the films in the international competition whose language and/or geographical area are taught at Inalco. This prize is endowed with 1,000 euros for the French translation and subtitling of the film.
In 2020, the Inalco jury had chosen to award ex æquo the films Diyalog by Selim Yildiz and Le Projet de mariage by Atieh Attarzadeh and Hesam Eslami.

In addition, the Ethnographic Film Committee and Inalco organize each year the "Regards comparés " selection within the Pôle des langues et civilisations. The next edition will take place from November 21 to 24, 2022 around the theme of the Mediterranean region.

41st Jean Rouch International Festival: seeing the world differently

The Jean Rouch International Festival is one of Europe's leading events for creative documentary cinema linked to the human and social sciences. The Festival invites all audiences to see the world differently, through the multitude of human journeys, both singular and collective, otherness and interculturality, social, cultural and political practices, and relationships with the environment. Over the years, the Festival has become a unique and unmissable venue, offering professionals and the general public alike a space for reflection and sharing. As a result, in 2021, it was awarded the CNRS Medal for Scientific Mediation.

The 41st edition of the Festival will be held in Paris from May 5 to 18, 2022. Admission to all screenings and events is free.
The 31 films in competition will be screened at the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac in the presence of the filmmakers, scientists and documentary film specialists from May 5 to 12. Part of this selection will also be broadcast online from May 13 to 27.

The winning films will be screened at the Musée de l'Homme from May 14 to 15, and a selection of sound documentaries will be offered at the Campus Condorcet in Aubervilliers from May 16 to 18.

The Inalco 2022 jury

Composed of an Inalco staff member, a teacher and a student, the jury is responsible for awarding the Prix Mondes en regards.

Axel Ducourneau is an anthropologist, research engineer and currently DGSA at Inalco. He has worked on the history of human migrations in the western Indian Ocean, then on the problems of socio-ecological systems in the Sahel region. Committed to disseminating scientific knowledge and exploring forms of knowledge linked to images and new technologies, he has taken part in several photographic exhibitions on the theme of the environment, and in 2010 wrote and co-directed a documentary on the Great Green Wall produced by CNRS images.

Il-Il Yatziv-Malibert is a professor in the Hebrew and Jewish Studies Department at Inalco. Her research focuses on contemporary spoken Hebrew. She is passionate about world cinema and in particular contemporary Israeli cinema and the different facets of Hebrew and Israeli society conveyed by this mode of expression.

A student at Inalco studying for a degree in Indonesian-Malaysian, Frédérique Vivet is also an artist-cinematographer. She makes docufiction films working in collaboration with her actors, who play their own roles in real, provoked, reconstructed or staged situations in order to shed light on their memories and their relationship to the world. Speech lies at the heart of her work, and she questions our ways of receiving narratives, and through this, the visible and the invisible.
