CALL FOR ENTRIES 2023

La Fabrique Cinéma 2023's call for entries is online!

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.

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.

La Fabrique will celebrate its 15th anniversary in 2023!

The registration deadline will be announced once the 110th eligible application will be received and by Thursday, November, 3, 2022.

The website will be updated regularly regarding the number of submissions received.

A FAQ document will be available shortly on this website.
