CATEGORY RULES
Films should be independent in spirit and original in perspective. This category is open to all European comedies made with less than 50% participation by a major studio or television broadcaster. Films may be submitted in any language, however must have subtitles in English except if the film is in English it must have French subtitles. Appropriate subtitles are required to ensure accurate judging abilities. A synopsis of no more than 180 characters, in English and French, a screenshot from the film and a short director's biography also in English and French are required upon submission.

Being able to use parts of the film or having a trailer/preview of the film would be helpful for promotional purposes within the festival and our events leading up to it.

Previous winners include ‘Great’ (Germany), ‘Island Queen’ (UK).

“It was a huge honour winning the best comedy award, especially given the quality of the other films in my category, and all the more special as I was fortunate enough to have been able to spend the whole weekend in Paris with the other filmmakers and all the lovely staff who do such a great job there. It's also been a huge boost for me professionally and I’m working hard with the writer on our first feature off the back of the win.”
- Ben Mallaby, Director of ‘Island Queen’, winner of ÉCU 2013, nomination for 2013 BAFTA Awards
