Cinema - Call for applications to La Fabrique Cinéma Programme

La Fabrique Cinéma de l’Institut français has been created to support talented new filmmakers from Southern and emerging countries. This programme has been developed in partnership with the Festival de Cannes. About ten projects in development of 1st or 2nd feature film are selected and invited to Cannes every year. The aim is to create concrete opportunities for these projects by providing access to different activities and personalized support through one-to-one and group meetings with key players in the film industry.
The selected directors are invited with their producers for ten days during the Festival de Cannes to participate in an intensive and personalized coaching. This programme is meant to help their projects through individual meetings with French and international producers or key players of the industry and group meetings, in partnership with the Festival de Cannes among others.

• Which are the main criteria?
 Directors must come from one of the eligible countries, including Iran.
 The project must be the director’s first or second feature-length film (fiction, documentary or animation).
