Entries Now Open: French Institute Cinema Factory (La Fabrique Cinéma) 2023 for emerging filmmakers.

La Fabrique Cinéma has been created by the Institut français, in partnership with France Médias Monde, the SACEM (French society of authors, composers and publishers of music) and the International Organisation of La Francophonie to support new talented filmmakers from Southern and emerging countries on the international market.
This programme has been developed in close association with the Festival de Cannes and the Marché du Film. Ten projects in development (1st or 2nd feature film) are selected and invited to Cannes. The aim is to create concrete opportunities for these projects by providing access to different activities and personalized support through one-to-one and group meetings with key players in the film industry.

Selection Criteria

  • An international call for entries limited to 110 projects is launched every year.
  • The applications are evaluated by a selection committee made up of scriptwriters, directors, editors, consultants, festival programmers and members of national and international cultural or cinematographic organisations.

The program will take place on-site during the Festival de Cannes. Part of the activities of the programme will take place online from Mid-April. The director and local producer of a selected project will be welcomed in Cannes for a period of 7 to 10 days during the Festival de Cannes.

The participants will benefit from an intensive program and personalized coaching. This programme is meant to help finance their projects through individual meetings with French and international producers as well as group meetings with professionals, in partnership with the Festival de Cannes and the parallel selections. Moreover, the strong commitment of La Fabrique Cinéma’s patron allows each year fruitful discussions about the selected projects. A planning of match-making meetings with French and international producers and sales agents is also organized.
