GINA ÉTÉ and Estelle Zamme & J4KIM win the «Best Swiss Video Clip» 2023
FONDATION SUISA, the Migros Culture Percentage’s m4music pop music festival and the Solothurn Film Festival awarded the «Best Swiss Video Clip» prizes for the 11th time on 25 March at the m4music Award Show in Zurich. A total of 208 artists submitted their music videos for the «Best Swiss Video Clip» 2023. The Zurich-based musician GINA ÉTÉ received the Jury Award for her music video «Trauma», with JELENA VUJOVIĆ as stage manager. The Audience Award went to Estelle Zamme & J4KIM and the film duo Julien Ledermann & Joaquim Perez for their video clip «Pistache». The prizes, worth CHF 5,000 each, are sponsored by FONDATION SUISA.
The «Best Swiss Video Clip» 2023 Jury Award was attributed to «Trauma» by the Zurich musician GINA ÉTÉ. It was directed by JELENA VUJOVIĆ, also from Zurich.
The jury, consisting of director Mei Fa Tan, filmmaker Géraldine Rod, presenter Lea Inderbitzin of SRF Sounds! Director of the FONDATION SUISA Urs Schnell and Philipp Schnyder, Director of the Migros Culture Percentage’s m4music festival, were impressed by the tasteful treatment of a serious and emotional subject: With aesthetic black-and-white shots and iconic elements, the video deals with humanitarian issues such as war, poverty and the refugee crisis in a discreet and intelligent way and succeeds in moving people, triggering emotions and sparking discussions. It is precisely these qualities that place «Trauma» at the top of the «Best Swiss Video Clip» list, explains Mei Fa Tan.
