SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT BEFORE Wednesday 16th of November, 2016!

La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde has been created by the Institut français, in partnership with the International Organisation of la Francophonie and France Médias Monde - France 24, RFI, Monte Carlo Doualyia - to support talented new filmmakers from Southern and emerging countries.

This programme has been developed in close association with the Festival de Cannes and the Marché du Film. 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.

You must register online before Wednesday 16th of November, 2016. A maximum of 120 projects will be accepted.
