Dedicated to first feature films, the Focus COPRO’ shines a light on short filmmakers taking the path of feature films.
With professionals from the feature film industry attending the Festival de Cannes and the Marché du Film, it is the perfect opportunity to gather the people behind projects and the producers, sales agents, film funds, institutions… Projects looking for a co-production are presented to major actors of the Industry within a lunch.
It is a unique opportunity to discover renowned short film talents, who already have an impact on today’s cinema and who will confirm their artistic vision with their first feature.
The Focus COPRO’ gathers filmmakers from the current or previous editions of Cannes’ short film Selections – in Competition, La Semaine de la Critique and Directors’ Fortnight – as well as projects scouted all year round.
Upon all the projects, one of them is taken from the last session of La Incubadora, feature film development program targeting emerging producers, directors & screenwriters from Spain, and developed by ECAM Industria.
