The 2023 Claude Chabrol Prize is awarded to Green Tide directed by Pierre Jolivet.

Created in 2011 after French director Claude Chabrol passed away, the Claude Chabrol Prize each year rewards a French film released in the past year whose cinematographic qualities honour the thriller genre, as a tribute to the man who was “President for life” of the Cognac Thriller Film Festival and then the one of Beaune when created in 2009.

Claude Chabrol

“Any thriller involves two dimensions. First of all a metaphysical willingness of some sort, then a form of humility. These two things almost make up a definition of what an artist is.”
