Guillaume Priou, rédacteur en chef chez Brut; co-réalisateur du film "Je ne suis pas une salope, je suis une journaliste"; et Président du jury de cette première édition, précise que : "Ce premier festival est une très bonne initiative et un bel outil pour donner de la visibilité au sport féminin. Comme toutes les bonnes idées, on se demande pourquoi cela n’existait pas avant ! C’était un vrai plaisir de présider cette première édition et de voir tous ces documentaires qui nous ont donné beaucoup d’émotions durant ces trois jours. Le documentaire est un beau format pour valoriser le sport au féminin, il a ce rôle de faire passer des messages, d’attirer notre attention et d’éveiller les consciences"
