The selection of Les Arcs Coproduction Village aims at showing the diversity of European cinema, in terms of geography as well as to present a balance between newcomers and experienced directors.
15 European countries are represented in this selection. First and second feature film projects are notified respectively by one or two asterisks and we are proud to gather 14 young and promising directors in this selection. Gender wise it is a 38-62% distribution as 8 out of the 21 projects are to be helmed by female directors.
All the participants selected with their projects will benefit from one-to-one pre-scheduled meetings with producers, sales agents, distributors, and from all the networking events organized in the resort.
This year, the festival is honouring German cinema. Besides, we are thrilled to be hosting the French-German Rendez-vous from the 18th to the 20th of December.
For this occasion, the Rendez-vous market is assimilated to the Coproduction Village market.
Thus, out of the 20 projects selected, 4 are from Germany and 6 from France. The French and German project representatives will have an extra night to participate to conferences and events organized by the Meetings on the 20th of December.
As we host this year a German focus, the conference will introduce the French / German coproduction schemes based on 2 case studies:
- « Mr Stine goes online » by Stéphane Robelin, produced by Ici et Là Productions (France), in coproduction with Detail Films (Germany), La Compagnie Cinématrographique (Belgium), Panache Productions (Belgium)
- « Things to come » by Mia Hansen-Love produced by CG Cinéma (France) and coproduced by Detail Films (Germany). Golden Bear for Best Director at the 2016 Berlinale.
The panel will gather Charles Gilibert (CG Cinéma), Christophe Bruncher (Ici et Là Productions) and Fabian Gasmia (Detail Films).
The conference will be moderated by Tom Grater from Screen International.
Furthermore, Meetings' participants will have a preferential rate if they wish to arrive on the 16th or 17th of December in order to schedule the one-to-one meetings as soon as the Coproduction Village begins.
