New Producers Room

Launched in 2022, the New Producers Room presents and supports 10 up-and-coming short film producers who already produced at least two short films.


The New Producers Room aims to make these producers more acquainted with co-production opportunities thanks to dedicated online sessions and presentations in Cannes.

Beyond financial collaborations, it is the opportunity to build strong & enriching bonds, learn co-production skills for the future, and therefore enhance the distribution & the exhibition of forthcoming short films.

Elaborated as part of the SFC | Rendez-vous Industry, this initiative sets a privileged moment for these young producers to meet potential partners and discover promising short film projects presented within the Creative Programs (Focus SCRIPT – shorts in development & Focus WiP – shorts in progress).

This year’s participants of the New Producers Room will be announced around mid-April.

The New Producers Room is developed in collaboration with European Institutions: Baltic Shorts, Cinesud, Croatian Film Centre, Scandinavian Film, Swiss Films, Syndicat des Producteurs Indépendants (SPI).

European Short Pitch offers a consultancy with an experienced producer, to accompany the development phase of one NEW PRODUCERS ROOM attendee’s project in an international framework.

The producer chosen to benefit from the ESP production sessions will also be invited to attend the initiative’s next CoProduction Forum (February 2024) to meet with the selected project-holders.

The Focus SCRIPT, WiP and COPRO’ support and present short films in development, in (post-)production, as well as first feature film projects.
