15 filmmakers supported to secure funding at Cannes.
In 2005, the Festival launched the Atelier, a new step in its action to promote the creation of new works. During 18 years the Atelier selected about fifteen feature length projects from around the world, and invited their directors to the Festival de Cannes in order to put them in contact with film professionals.
The filmmakers are selected according to the quality of their project and that of their previous films, as well as on the state of progress of their finance plan. The programme will enable them to gain access to international financing and speed up the production process.
In 2023, the Atelier takes a break to re-think its operations. More information will be given in the months to come.
In the meantime you can have a look at the Atelier former projects.
