Focus WiP | Focus COPRO’ – Throwback

Since 2018, the Short Film Corner | Rendez-vous Industry develops various intiatives to support up-and-coming filmmakers, shining a light on their short & feature projects at different stages of development.

Thanks to the Creative Programs – Focus WiP, Focus COPRO’ & Focus SCRIPT – filmmakers on the move benefit from a dedicated space to showcase their projects, get personalized consultancies, meet with key decision-makers and find the support they need.

Throwback on several alumni and how far their projects have come since their participation…
