Focus SCRIPT 2021

Focus SCRIPT 2021 – the 7 curated projects

The Focus SCRIPT aims to forge bonds with Visual Arts & Film Schools as well as European Producers during the SFC | Rendez-vous Industry. Thanks to this program, we spot & highlight innovative talents and support them in the first steps of their next short film.

Find below more information about the seven chosen projects for this debut edition.

The Focus SCRIPT looks to offer a dedicated space for students or recent graduates from the collaborating Film Schools and help them get targeted feedbacks on their scripts at a early stage of work.
It also facilitates the meeting of potential partners, such as (co-)producers & distributors, but also through the expertise of various industry decision-makers around specific topics designed for each project.

One-to-one meetings between the project holders and the attending producers & distributors take place on Wednesday, July 14th at 11:30am at the Short Film Corner | Rendez-vous Industry
(Palais des Festivals – level -1, aisle 14)
The professionnals participating ONLINE can freely contact the project holders to set-up a meeting.
