Raoul Peck will be the patron of the 2013 edition of the Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde - a joint initiative between the Institut francais, the International Organisation of La Francophonie and the Audiovisuel Extérieur de la France, aimed at finding financing for the work of filmmakers from the under-represented groups globally.

The program's 2013 project line-up, which takes place during the Cannes Film Festival, includes feature projects from AlgeriaBurkina Faso, Kenya, South Africa, Rwanda, Haiti, Brazil, Colombia, Armenia, and the Philippines.

Launched in 2009, the Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde has hosted projects from 60 directors from 35 countries to date. In 2012, some 80% of the projects presented received co-production deals within six months of the event.

The Fabrique is housed in the Cinéma du Monde pavilion at Cannes. 

9 talented young directors, their producers, and respective projects, who've been selected to present projects at this year's event, are listed below (I'll return with individual profiles of those we haven't covered previously, once I learn more):
