Sesterce: new trophy for the Grands Prix

The Festival's Awards for best short, medium-length and feature films are going back to their old name: the Golden Sesterce. As for best Swiss film, best first feature film (Regard Neuf) and Audience Award, they will receive the Silver Sesterce.

20/45 | 2014: a double commemoration!
Developing our cinematographic offer and welcoming our audience in friendlier spaces: these are the efforts that Festival international de cinéma Nyon makes to celebrate its 45 years of existence and its 20 year under the name Visions du Réel, from April 25 to May 3 2014. What is new for our double anniversary: a new trophy, the Golden and Silver Sesterce.

This denomination had already been used in the past and is a reference to Nyon city's Roman roots, the sesterce being an ancient Roman coin.

"With our Sesterce trophy, we are particularly happy to echo the city's history and very proud to count on such a renowned artist as Bernard Bavaud", say Claude Ruey, Festival President.
