The Cinefondation’s Atelier hosts its sixteenth edition this year and will invite to the Festival de Cannes 16 directors whose projects have been considered particularly promising. Together with their producers, they will be able to meet potential partners, a necessary step to finish their project and start the making of their film. L’Atelier provides its participants access to international co-productions, thus accelerating the film’s completion.

The Cinefondation’s Atelier has been created in 2005 to stimulate creative filmmaking and encourage the emergence of a new generation of filmmakers. So far, out of 233 projects accompanied, 171 have been released theatrically and 14 are currently in pre-production. For L’Atelier’s 16th edition, 15 projects from 15 countries have been selected, from the upcoming director to the well-known filmmaker.
