Presentation : Films in Development

Français | Español


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.


In 2016, more than 220 meetings were organized with producers, sellers, festival programmers… including La Cinéfondation of the Cannes Festival, Les films du Worso, Sophie Dulac Production and Distribution, the FID Marseille, Altamar Films, Outplay Films, Full House, Epicentre Films, Memento Films... Some workshops were conducted by the French Institute, l’ACID, the San Sebastián Festival and Films Boutique with the project-holders.
