IQ ONE WORLD AWARD
French solar film
wins IQ One World
“Wattway – Solar Road,” which highlights a French experiment using solar panels on a roadway to generate electricity, has won the One World award in the 2016 festival. The award is given annually by the International Quorum of Motion Picture Producers (IQ) to a film that best promotes understanding of world issues and cooperation. IQ members select the winner. The group has 96 members across 47 countries.
“Wattway,” produced by Arizona Films, Brussels, explains a test project in which France expects to lay 621 miles of solar roadway in the next five years, enough, if successful, to furnish electricity to 5 million people. The project is a collaboration between the National Institute of Solar Energy and Colas, considered a world leader in road infrastructure with operations in more than 45 countries.
The film’s producer was Didier Clerens with Patrick Vandebroeck as director and Phoenix Post as editor. Cinematographer was Oliver Imfeld, and Ronald Vanhuffel was responsible for sound.
