Prize list 2015 : communiqué

The 5th edition of Honest Planet Festival with the theme “Food of the Earth” was a resounding success. The Festival, held for the first time on the beautiful site of Cadenet Castle, welcomed two thousand visitors. A local and national audience was won over by a profusion of pleasures, big and small: the creative and colorful set-up of greenhouses, the high quality documentaries and speakers, cinema under the stars, conviviality, discussions and exchanges as well as delicious food. A warm and relaxed atmosphere, conducive to reflection on the necessity of preserving life and protecting our planet.

To be consistent with our purpose "from seed to plate", we made a point of collaborating with local and organic farmers, gardeners, and livestock producers, to offer regional cuisine that was both tasty and healthy.

Among the ten films presented, many having a link with first nations people such as the Inuit in Thule Tuvalu and Sol or the Bunong in Derniers Hommes Eléphants--all evoking the end of an ancestral lifestyle—several truly moved the audience.

Others, such as Regards sur nos assiettes or Nature paysanne were in direct connection with the themes of the talks and sparked intense discussions.

The organizers, Joelle P. Kartesz, the Managing Director, and Fabienne Mulliez, were pleased to award the Audience Choice Award to Natalia Rossetti and Salvatore Finocchiaro for their film "Chœurs en exil" (Choirs in exile), a noted film celebrating traditional music in the vestiges of a vanished Armenian world.

The festival's closing was done in a whirl of music fusion with the gypsy cabaret group DIVANO DROMENSA.
