Film Talents to Cannes 2022

Film Talents to Cannes is a special networking program organized by CineSud and is taking place during SFC Rendez-Vous Industry - a market for short films. SFC Rendez-Vous Industry will take place 22-27.05.2022 and aims to bring film professionals from around the world to show their films, network, raise awareness of you as a filmmaker, and get inspiration for new projects. 

SFC Rendez-Vous Industry, a Forum dedicated to short filmmakers, takes place at the heart of the Film Market. During one week, it offers participants to take part in a program of Professional Meetings, Workshops, Masterclasses and Panels - broaching different topics as distribution, festival strategy and co-production. SFC Rendez-Vous Industry aims to promote emerging talents and bring together both creation and the industry. Neither a selection nor a competition, the Short Film Corner (SFC Rendez-Vous Industry) - as a Film Market - is designed to boost networking between professionals.
