The UGTT Prize rewards the best technician for a feature film and the best technician for a short film.
When we take a look at the history of Tunisian cinema and its "celebrations," the technician seems to be prone to failure. For this reason and since 2011, associations and film structures have initiated a great deal of work to give to the Tunisian audiovisual technician its rightfull place and to guarantee, like any worker, a social coverage befitted to its working conditions. In this perspective, the UGTT ansd the Carthage Film Festival have introduced since 2012 the UGTT Prize for the best technician.
