Cinéfondation 9th L'Atelier - 66th Cannes Film Festival

For L’Atelier’s 9th edition, 15 projects from 14 countries have been selected. Since its creation in 2005, L’Atelier has been stimulating creative filmmaking and encouraging the emergence of a new generation of filmmakers. By inviting directors and their producers to meet hundreds of potential partners during the Festival de Cannes, L’Atelier offers its participants access to international co-production, thereby maximizing their chances of completing their projects. So far, out of 126 projects presented over the last eight years, 83 have been completed and 29 are currently in pre-production.

From May 17 to 23, L’Atelier will arrange meetings with the directors for film industry professionals interested in investing in their projects. The Livre des Projets and the meeting request forms will be available online at the beginning of April on Cinéfondation official site.

The following are the 15 selected projects.
