This year our market merges with the French German Rendez-vous market which means 10 of the 20 projects will have either French or German main producers.

One-to-one meetings and Industry events will be organized to create matchmaking opportunities. And Les Arcs team will be there to help.

There are no public pitching sessions. Online catalog of the projects will be available for participants in advance of the event.


The French-German Rendez-vous

This year, Les Arcs Film Festival will host the French-German Rendez-vous, from December 18 to 20. The markets of the two events will merge. 10 of the 20 selected projects to the Coproduction Village will have either French or German main producers.


Projects holders from France and Germany will be invited one extra night to attend the Rendez-vous’ conferences, organized on December 20.


The Rendez-vous’ participants will benefit from special fares, should they be willing to arrive earlier and fully attend the festival Industry events, from December 16 or 17.
