Call for applications : La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde

A call for applications is launched by La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde, a project development platform for young talents from the world cinema, organised by the French Institute during the Cannes Film Festival. It's open to first or second feature-length film or documentary projects.
The deadline is 2 December 2013.


La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde has been developed by working closely with the Festival de Cannes and the Marché du Film. It supports the projects of talented young filmmakers who are working on their first or second feature film. Selected directors are invited with their producers to take part in the programme during the Festival de Cannes. The aim is to create concrete opportunities for project development by providing access to different activities: Producers Network, Producers Workshops, Cannes Court Métrage – Short Film Corner, professional lunches, parallel selections… Due to the strong commitment of its patron and to a professional team, each project receives personalised support through one-to-one and group meetings with key players in the film industry.


In 2013, under the patronage of Raoul Peck, the nine directors and their producers selected to take part in the Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde programme benefited from:

- 18 group meetings with the heads of the Marché du Film, the Cinéfondation, ARTE, the Directors’ Fortnight, Critics Week, the Aide aux Cinémas du Monde (World Cinema Support), and specialists in film financing and sales.
- 265 one-to-one meetings with 100 French producers, 65 Québec producers (from the SODEC network) and 90 European producers (from the EAVE network)
- 2 thematic lunches with 30 professional vendors, distributors, sources of funding and festivals


The Cinémas du Monde Pavilion is organised by the Institut français in partnership with the International Organisation of La Francophonie and France Médias Monde– RFI,  Monte Carlo Doualiya, France 24. The Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde is the professional programme run by the Cinémas du Monde Pavilion to support talented new filmmakers from Southern countries.
