A jury made up of image and adventure professionals...
President of the jury for the film 2020
Captain of Vagabond, polar exploration sailboat
By the time he completes his engineering degree in oceanographic engineering, Eric already has a good number of adventurous and sporting expeditions around the world: mountain biking, horseback riding, mountaineering, trekking, diving, kayaking? With his diploma in hand, he has multiplied scientific missions in the North and South polar lands, while enriching his skills (geophysics, oceanography, magnetism, seismology, first aid, health, safety and environment, boating ...) and participates in many editions of the Ecrans de l'aventure de Dijon.
In 1994, at Les Kerguelen, he collaborated in the repairs of Isabelle Autissier's sailboat. This meeting and experience gave rise to a desire to expand his services and skills. He wants to equip himself with an additional tool, a logistics base for scientific and sporting exploration. Since the purchase of Vagabond in 1999, Éric and his teammate France Pinczon du Sel have almost never set moorings. Together as a family, they have carried out an impressive number of scientific missions and Arctic circumpolar explorations.
The jury for the film 2020 is also composed of:
Producer and co-founder of
L'Envol productions and of Un film à la patte
Without specializing solely in adventure documentaries, Ariane has produced and co-produced a large number of adventure films revealing human qualities and often presented at the Écrans de l'aventure. Among them we can retain: Sous les étoiles du Pôle
(Under the Pole's Stars) and Sur le grand océan blanc
(On the Great White Ocean) two films directed by Hugues de Rosière retracing the expeditions of Vagabond
to Spitsbergen and Canada,La Boudeuse à la découverte des peuples de l’eau
discovering the people of the water) Patrice Franceschi's collection, Semeuses de joie
(Sowers of joy) of Caroline Riegel and Du Vent dans les fauteuils
(Vent in the armchairs) de Patrick Thierry…
A knowledgeable and committed producer with a passion for navigation on all seas, Ariane has often had to visit the most atypical filming sites, which has given her a good field experience to develop adventure film projects.
Adventurer, engineer and director
Jean-Baptiste is an engineer, specializing in offshore operations management (ROV, wind turbines, cables, oil and gas...). He carries out missions for several companies by working on barges and piloting underwater robots. A great traveler, he also rubs shoulders with adventure on several occasions: the North Atlantic in a schooner, the Kerguelen Islands on a scientific mission... Amateur documentary filmmaker, he has made a film and a trip to Antarctica on board the small 12 m Florès
. This film, On a marché sur la banquise
(We walked on the ice floe), was presented at the Écrans de l'aventure in Dijon in 2018.
Today, his need for commitment to the planet pushes him to imagine solutions... His Innova Vis project thus attempts to design gliders capable of traveling long distances autonomously with a zero impact on the environment (using only renewable energies: wind and sun). Its next mediatized objective is a "tour of France with zero impact", to prove that we can enter the era of a sustainable humanity, respectful of our Planet and its inhabitants.
