SENTINELLES: Winner of the Jury Prize for Best TV Series

Series created by Thibault VALETOUX and Frédéric KRIVINE, directed by Jean-Philippe AMAR for OCS and produced by Antoine SZYMALKA and Emmanuel DAUCÉ TETRA MEDIA FICTION.

In the Mopti region of Mali, Lieutenant ANAIS COLLET's platoon, deployed as part of Operation Barkhane, is dedicated to tracking down terrorists.
But an ambush with dramatic consequences rekindles tensions between the military and the Malian population, which is less and less accepting of the French presence.
In a country where armed terrorist groups are proliferating on the embers of poorly extinguished conflicts, the French army must compose a complex partition whose stake is to avoid the proclamation of a caliphate in the Sahel.

Who are these young soldiers serving under the French flag, thousands of kilometers from home, who risk their lives to protect ours?

Centered on three characters Anais Collet (28), Martial Mendy (24) and Julien Ravalet (24), Sentinelles is a contemporary war series that aims to question the relationship of French youth to commitment and to offer a look at a complex geopolitical situation, a reflection of an era tormented by the issue of Islamic terrorism.

About the American French Film Festival (formerly Colcoa), The American French Film Festival is committed to promoting new French films in the United States and highlighting the vitality and diversity of French cinema, and, since 2015, French television programs. In 20 years, 676 films have been selected. The Festival has continually evolved into a 9-day showcase of at least 70 films, with a capacity of over 25,800 people in 2016, and an average of 3,000 people per day, as well as a 91.3% occupancy rate. In 2016, 25,000 people were in attendance at COLCOA's 25th-anniversary celebration, which has become one of the most important festivals in Hollywood.


Tetra Media Fiction has been affirming for several years a clear positioning on the series production market: producing ambitious auteur series such as Paris Police 1900 (CANAL+), Irresponsible (OCS) or Un Village Français (France 3).
