Two Sundance films are making their way to the south of France next month; Jim Mickle’s Cold in July and Damian Chazelle’s Whiplash. The two films will compete in the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs during the festival and are eligible for the coveted Caméra d’Or prize.

Created in 1978 to encourage greater recognition of young filmmakers, the Caméra d’Or is awarded to the best first film shown either in the Official Selection (Competition or Un Certain Regard), the Directors’ Fortnight or International Critics’ Week. The Caméra d’Or is presented at the Festival’s closing ceremony by the president of this jury, Agnès Varda. In 2013, the Caméra d’Or is awarded to Anthony Chen for his film Ilo ilo.
