Films in development 13

Français | Español

21st of MARCH, 2018 in TOULOUSE


Cinéma en Développement is a place where professionals from Latin America and Europe can connect. It's all about meetings and exchanges : the objective of this hub is to put the professionals who want to discover new talents and projects in touch with directors or producers who are developing a project and who want to create or reinforce their professional network. 


Cinéma en Développement can receive around twenty producers or directors with a project at different stages (writing, financing, production, post-production) and formats (feature-length fiction films, documentaries, animation and short-films). A match-making will be done to make easier the encounter with potential partners, producers, sellers, distributors, channels and to get some feedbacks. Directors and producers of the selected projects will meet the professionals during individual meetings of 30 minutes.
