Les Arcs Coproduction Village’s selection aims at highlighting the diversity and breadth of European cinema, in terms of geography as well as to present a balance between newcomers and experienced directors.
In 2018, 12 European countries were represented in this selection, and we were proud to gather 11 young and promising directors with their first feature films. Among all the directors attached to the projects received by the Coproduction Village, 27% were women and 73% were men. In the selection, 6 out of the 20 projects (30%) were directed by women.
All the participants selected with their projects benefited from one-to-one pre-scheduled meetings with producers, sales agents, distributors, and from all the networking events organized in the resort.
One conference was also held during the Coproduction Village. It was related to our focus country, Poland.
In 2018, ArteKino Festival allocated to the 2 following projects, a 2000€ award each :
- OTHER PEOPLE by Aleksandra Terpinska produced by Madants (Poland)
- RASCAL by Peter Dourountzis produced by 10:15! Productions (France)
