Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde seeks film projects for Cannes 2015

The Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde, the professional programme of the Cinémas du Monde (lit. "World Cinema") pavillion at the Cannes Film Festival, each year allows talented filmmakers at the beginning of their career to develop their first of second feature film. 

The Cinémas du Monde pavillion is a venue dedicated to filmmakers from Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern and Central Europe, and the Middle East.

The Fabrique aims to facilitate selected participants’ access to different activities at the Cannes Film Festival, and supports selected projects via individual and group meetings with key players from the film industry.

The Fabrique is calling for applications for its 2015 edition to allow selected directors (and their producers) to attend the next Cannes Film Festival from May 13 to 24, 2015.

The following film projects are eligible:

  • Film projects whose director comes from one of the eligible countries (including Algeria, Morocco, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine)
  • The project must be the director's first or second feature-length film or documentary.
  • Film projects with a local producer (or a producer from one of the eligible countries) who has produced a short film or feature film within the last five years
  • Fiction or documentary film projects, but not a film project for television
  • The film's provisional budget must be less than €3 million

The Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde has been created by the Institut français, in partnership with the International Organisation of la Francophonie to support talented new filmmakers from Southern and emerging countries.
