Company details

Position Producer and General Manager
Company Petit Film


Born in Paris in 1976, Jean des Forêts created his company Petit Film in 2010 after 14 years in the film industry. With an ideal pace of production of one film per year, Petit Film aspires to longevity before growth. Driven by intuition, unfettered by questions of genre or budget, the company is building a limited but eclectic and palpable catalogue of films for the cinema. Over the years, Jean has produced works of directors such as Virgil Vernier, Lucile Hadzihalilovic, Fabien Gorgeart, Julia Ducournau or Stéphane Demoustier. Projects currently in development include films by some of the above-mentioned filmmakers, as well as new partnerships. Jean is a member of Unifrance’s Feature-Film Producers’ Commission and is EAVE network’s National Coordinator for France.

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 in 2016. Its goal is to enable one producer from outside the EU to participate in all three sessions of the EAVE Producers Workshop each year.
