Eight emerging talents participated in workshops at Pavillon Puebla in Paris from January 18th to 20th 2021, and then presented their first feature project to professionals within the frame of the Coproduction Village at Les Arcs FIlm Festival
The Talent Village was created on the 10th edition of Les Arcs Film Festival. It aims at encouraging the rise of a new generation of daring and ambitious directors, as well as accompanying them in the journey of their first feature film.
After attending a 3 days workshop, the selected talents have the opportunity of presenting their first feature project to industry professionnals within the frame of the Coproduction Village at Les Arcs Film Festival.
Every year, we ask a renowned figure of the European cinema to be the ambassador of the Talent Village.
For this edition Laurent Cantet (Human ressources, Time out, The class, Foxfire) was the ambassador of the Talent Village after the Danish filmmaker, Thomas Vinterberg (Festen,The Hunt, Kursk, Drunk) in 2018, and the eminent French actress Isabelle Huppert in 2019.
There is no open call for the Talent Village which entirely curated by the Industry Village team. To select the Talents we watch a lot of short films and collaborate with European Films Schools and T-Port platform. For more information write to us.
