LA FABRIQUE DES CINEMAS DU MONDE

Dear EAVE producers,

We would like to inform you about  the call for entries of La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde!

How to subscribe?

A registration form is online on the website : www.lescinemasdumonde.com

What's La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde programme?

La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde is composed of talented young filmmakers who are working on their first or second feature film, or who have finished a feature film with support from the Fonds Sud Cinéma (Centre National de la Cinématographie et l'Image Animée/Ministère des Affaires Etrangères et Européennes/Institut français), the Fonds Images Afrique (Ministère des Affaires Etrangères et Européennes) or the Fonds Francophone de Production Audiovisuelle du Sud (International Organisation of la Francophonie).

Ten selected directors and their producers will be invited to take part in a professional programme, which has been organised by the Cinémas du Monde Pavilion during the Festival de Cannes to support talented new filmmakers. With their shared desire to support cultural dialogue and diversity, the Pavilion's partners (Institut français, l’Audiovisuel Extérieur de la France – RFI, Monte Carlo Doualiya, France 24 and the French partner channel TV5 Monde – l’Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie and CFI) will contribute resources and expertise to create a unique workspace and networking area with exceptional media coverage.

La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde has worked closely with the Festival de Cannes and the Marché du Film to develop a comprehensive work programme. The aim is to create concrete opportunities for project development or film distribution, by providing access to different activities (including the Producers Network, Producers Workshop, Cannes Court Métrage – Short Film Corner, Marché du Film screening, professional lunches at la Plage des Palmes).

With a bigger team, the active and generous participation of the Pavilion's patrons and the development of a partner network (which includes professional organisations and parallel selections), La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde gives personalised support to each project. This includes organising one-to-one and group meetings with key players in the film industry.

Its excellent workshops and abundant professional contacts have already helped several films and projects find co-production and international distribution opportunities.

The winners of the fifth Cross-Media Forum held in association with the BFI London Film Festival saw Love and Engineering for accomplished international cross-media projects have been awarded. The £6,000 ARTE Pixel Pitch Prize went to LOVE AND ENGINEERING, produced by Finland's EAVE graduate Kaarle Aho (Making Movies Oy), directed by Bulgarian Tonislav Hristov. Love and Engineering follows a group of lonely computer engineers who attempt to find love by endeavouring to translate their online social skills to offline situations with the opposite sex. The pitch won the hearts of the jury and the audience; hopefully the engineers will have the same success. 

The project encompasses a feature-length documentary, interactive website, mobile apps and live events. Production is planned for 2012 with release the following year. The Pixel Pitch is the competitive section of The Pixel Market, dedicated to financing cross-media projects from around the world.

Donate to the EAVE Alan Fountain International Scholarship Fund

A scholarship has been set up to honour the memory of Alan Fountain, former Head of Studies and President of EAVE, who passed away on March 3. Its goal is to enable one producer from outside the EU to participate in all three sessions of the EAVE Producers Workshop each year.
