The Cinefondation’s Atelier hosts its thirteenth edition this year and will invite to the Festival de Cannes 16 directors whose projects have been considered particularly promising. Together with their producers, they will be able to meet potential partners, a necessary step to finish their project and start the making of their film. L’Atelier provides its participants access to international co-productions, thus accelerating the film’s completion.
The Cinefondation’s Atelier has been created in 2005 to stimulate creative filmmaking and encourage the emergence of a new generation of filmmakers. So far, out of 186 projects accompanied, 145 have been completed and 14 are currently in pre-production. For L’Atelier’s 13th edition, 15 projects from 14 countries have been selected, from the new director to the well-known filmmaker.
From May 19 to 25, L’Atelier will arrange meetings with the directors for film industry professionals interested in investing in their projects.
