La Fabrique Cinéma becomes the e-Fabrique
As part of the Festival de Cannes Marché du Film Virtuel, which will take place from 22 to 26 June 2020, the Institut français and its partners will also open a virtual Cinémas du Monde Pavilion to highlight the programmes that support world cinema and emerging film industries and present the projects of La Fabrique Cinéma’s participants.
The 17 participants of La Fabrique Cinéma have been taking part in online working group sessions since the beginning of May, made possible by the increased efforts of the Fabrique teams. This means they can benefit from the majority of the programme, which has been converted into a digital format. The first work sessions enabled the participants from around the world to meet virtually and become familiar with the programme. They were provided with tools to help with co-production and international sales.
At the end of the programme, during the Festival de Cannes Marché du Film Virtuel, the participants will be able to meet potential partners, coproducers and sales agents individually.
The transformation of La Fabrique’s programme into a virtual programme was made possible thanks to the valued support of numerous professionals and loyal partners such as EAVE, SODEC, Cinéfondation, the Marché du Film’s Cannes Docs and Producers Network, the CNC, the Semaine de la Critique (Critics’ Week), the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs (Directors’ Fortnight) and ACID.
