Through his Paris-based company Petit Film, Jean des Forêts (Paris, 1976) produces and co-produces French and foreign films.
The choices, based on perfectly subjective criteria, gradually constitute a genre-agnostic and eclectic catalog.
His recent credits include RAW by Julia Ducournau (Cannes Critic’s Week 2016 – Fipresci prize), ALOYS by Tobias Nölle (Berlinale Panorama 2016 – Fipresci prize), EL CINCO by Adrían Biniez (Venice Days 2014, Tribeca 2015), 40 DAYS OF SILENCE by Saodat Ismailova (Berlinale Forum 2014).
Slated for 2017 are DIANE by Fabien Gorgeart and KAIROS by Nicolas Buenaventura.
Jean des Forêts is EAVE national coordinator for France and runs one of their international workshops, Puentes.
He is also a deputy member of the CNC / Institut Français Aide aux Cinémas du Monde Distribution Support.
