Talent Village Music Pitch


Come discover the Talent Village music works! 

The Talent Village aims at encouraging the rise of a new generation of daring and ambitious film directors, as well as guiding them through the process of creation of their first feature film.

After weeks working closely together, this year’s composers and directors will have the opportunity to present the music scores they have specially created for two of the Talent Village feature films projects.

EPC Panel - AI: From script to distribution, examples on uses that facilitate production 


AI can be used not only for script writing but also during production (virtual production) and to facilitate distribution and waterfalls of receipts. Through examples, this panel will tackle the risks and opportunities of AI for independent producers.

Organized in partnership with and moderated by Alexandra Lebret, European Producers Club

Case Study : The production and international sales of the Hungarian Film Explanation for everything  


Produced with a very low budget, and few sources of financing, the film by Gábor Reisz (Hungary) won the Orizzonti Best Film Award at last Venice Film Festival, and was one of the most acclaimed and best selling films at Venice. This case study analyzed the production and sales strategy behind this success.

The film is also screened in competition in Les Arcs.

Speakers: Juli Berkes (producer, Proton Cinema, Hungary) & Gabor Greiner (sales agent, Film Boutique).

Moderated by Ben Dalton from Screen International


As a film producer, how to deal with music ?       


A roundtable about the relationship between producers and music supervisors, to better understand how music supervisors can provide support to producers both artistically and financially across all stages of the film process, including pre-production, production and post-production phases. The panel will highlight the collaborative achievements of two successful producer-music supervisors duos:

  • Alexandre Gavras (producer, KG Productions, France) and Thibault Deboaisne (Sound Division, France) worked together on Xavier Legrand’s films Custody and Le Successeur (in competition in Les Arcs this year). Deboaisne also worked lately on Anatomy of a Fall by Justine Triet and The Night of the 12th by Dominique Moll.
  • Erik Glijnis (producer, Lemming Film, The Netherlands) and Laura Bell (Bell Music Supervision, The Netherlands) collaborated on Sweet Dreams by Ena Sendijarević and Melk by Stefanie Kolk both screened in the programming of the festival this year.

Masterclass Music & Cinema 



Benoit Chieux is a French director of animated films working for the Folimage studio, with which he favors artisanal work. He notably directed the short films Tigres à la queue leu leu and Le Jardin de midnight, both nominated for the César of best animated short film in 2016 and 2018. His second feature film, Sirocco and the kingdom of the winds, opened the Annecy International Animated Film Festival and won the audience prize.

Pablo Pico combines classical percussion training with self-taught composition. Live musician and composer, he turned to film music in 2010 with several short films, and in 2015 signed the soundtrack for ADAMA by Simon Rouby, his first feature film, in collaboration with the rapper Oxmo Puccino.

Hosted by journalist Perrine Quennesson with the support of Sacem & 22D Music.

Workshop - A night to think about mental health 


This year we repeated this moment of exchange around a new theme: “Cinema in therapy: mental health, in front of and behind the screen”.

The night in the chalet took place from December 19th to 20th, 2023. A dozen people, not necessarily experts, but interested in these subjects, and motivated by the idea of living this collective adventure in the mountains, in this spirit of “constructive sobriety” participated to this unique experience. 

In the frame of our partnership with l'ADN, a podcast was recorded in Les Arcs to establish the conclusions of this experience, and will soon be available

Workshop - Film : an addictive industry ?


This year, Les Arcs will have a special programme on mental health behind and in front of the camera, organized in partnership with the festival Pop & Psy.

Our industry can lead to addictive behaviors, when networking and partying is often considered as part of our jobs and as the limits between private and professional life are somewhat narrow. This workshop used collective intelligence to discuss possible solutions and ways to build a prevention programme.

Moderated by Dr Jean-Victor Blanc (Psychiatrist, Pop & Psy Festival) and by Fabienne Silvestre (Les Arcs Film Festival)
