French company Le Pacte (which distributed Folman's Waltz with Bashir and Miniscule) was given the Distributor of the Year award.

Along with these prizes, the Rhône-Alpes Region awarded a Personality of the Year award to Jacques-Rémy Girerd, co-writer of the Oscar-nominated A Cat In Paris (Folimage studio, Paris).
