Cannes L'Atelier

For the 9th edition of the Cannes L’Atelier’s, 15 projects from 14 countries have been selected.

The initiative's goal, since its launch in 2005, has been to stimulate creative filmmaking and encourage new generations of filmmakers, by inviting directors and their producers to meet hundreds of potential partners during the Cannes Film Festival, offering its participants access to international co-production, thereby maximizing their chances of completing their projects.

So far, out of 126 projects presented over the last 8 years, 83 have been completed, and 29 are currently in pre-production, according to the press release.

This year's 15 projects follow below - repping the Diaspora, you'll find projects from Egypt, Ethiopia, and South Africa.
