The jury of the 20th edition of the Festival de la Fiction TV unveiled its list of prizewinners on 15 September 2018 in La Rochelle (France). The series Invisibles, supported by Canal+ International and CFI, won the Prize for the Best Foreign Francophone Fiction.

Invisibles immerses the viewer in a social thriller in which delinquent children form an ultra-violent gang in order to survive. Captivating, moving and poignant, this series puts a global social phenomenon into perspective by focusing on disoriented young people who are fighting for a better life.

Directed and created by Alex Ogou, Invisibles is a series of 10 episodes of 52 minutes,
co-produced by Ý International and produced by TSK Studios in Côte d'Ivoire with the support of Fonds Image de la Francophonie (OIF) and CFI, the French media development agency.

Canal+ International, CFI and all the partners are proud to have played a role in the creation of this series and congratulate all the teams that participated in this production on this prestigious award. Invisibles thus becomes the first Francophone African series with a duration of 52 minutes to win an award outside the African continent.
