Film Talents to Cannes 2020
Every new filmmaker from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany can apply. The selected filmmakers will present their short film during special events at Short Film Corner and get accreditations to visit the Marché du Film from May 17. Next to that, CineSud offers them special and exclusive network-opportunities with key-players in the field, acces to conferences and workshops and invitations to networking drinks and receptions during the Marché. Filmmakers are guided by two coaches of CineSud who also help them to get one-on-one meetings with representatives of production companies, distributors, festivals and much more.
Before and during the Festival de Cannes, CineSud cooperates with lots of international partners to ensure the selected participants receive the best training and networking possibilities. Amongst others these are the Cannes Court Metrage, the Netherlands Film Commission and Netherlands Film Fund, partners from the European Film Commission Network and partners from Screen Talent Europe. For the 2020 edition we also cooperate with several Dutch partners to select talents from different regions. In 2020 these partners are Cinecitta and New Noardic Wave.
