About the Cinéfondation...
The Cinéfondation supports the up and coming generation of filmmakers
Created in 1998 under the initiative of Gilles Jacob, the Cinéfondation, sometimes called "the head hunter" of the festival, is dedicated to young creators. Through three main actions, the foundation supports the film projects of young directors; from scriptwriting to recognizing their work on the international scale, to searching for financial support.
