Call for entries for the 7th edition of La Fabrique des cinemas du monde 2015

A project development workshop organised each year by the Institut Français during the Cannes Film Festival.

cinemas du monde

This programme is dedicated to first or second feature-length films (fiction, documentary or animation). 
In recent years, La Fabrique has established itself as a key platform for emerging talents from across the world, for them to access funding and international film festivals.


La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde has been created by the Institut français to support talented new filmmakers from Southern and emerging countries. This professional programme has been developed in partnership with the International Organisation of La Francophonie, in close association with the Festival de Cannes and the Marché du Film.

La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde supports the projects of talented young filmmakers who are working on their first or second feature film. Since 2012, the selection of projects has increased through an international call for entry. Projects are now selected at a later stage of development to allow participants benefit from all the opportunities of the Festival de Cannes. The selection committee chooses eight to ten projects every year.

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 at the beginning of the festival, to a professional team and personal coaches, each project receives personalised support through one-to-one and group meetings with key players in the film industry.

8 December 2014.
