In 2018, the Short Film Corner – with the support of NISI MASA – launched the Focus CoPro’, an event dedicated to first feature film projects, in the aim of highlighting young talents on an International scale. After its pilot edition that has seen 5 inspiring projects from all over the world being pitched in front of Industry decision-makers, the second edition of the Focus CoPro’ is now on its way!
With the intention of providing an additional support to filmmakers bridging the gap from short to feature, the Short Film Corner and the Pop Up Film Residency decided to join forces!
One of the projects pitched during this year’s edition of the Focus CoPro’ will be selected by Matthieu Darras, Pop Up Film Residency Founder & Director, and benefit from a 3-weeks residency program in Bratislava.
The Focus CoPro’ pitch sessions will take place on Tuesday, May 21st from 10am at the Short Film Corner during the upcoming Festival de Cannes.
This initiative is only open to the filmmakers registered at the Short Film Corner and the ones selected in Official Competition, Critic’s Week and Director’s Fortnight.
