Mediterranean co-production workshop


Updated on 10/04/2019

In collaboration with the Institut français and the Région Sud under their partnership agreement, and with the support of the City of Marseille and the CNC, Meditalents is organising the first edition of its Mediterranean co-production workshop in Marseille on 5th, 6th and 7th April 2019.

In keeping with its commitment to dialogue between the two shores of the Mediterranean through cinema, Meditalents is organising the first edition of a Mediterranean co-production workshop in Marseille from 5th to 7th April 2019.

Following a call for applications, ten director-producer duos will present their film projects on each shore of the Mediterranean to potential co-producers, international distributors and managers of support and/or financing funds. 

For two days, these director-producer duos will have the opportunity to promote their film and make it known thanks to short pitching opportunities and individual meetings. 

This will also be an opportunity for them to develop their production strategy by meeting decision-makers and discussing with other possible co-production producer partners. 

Any potential reciprocal interest in contributions of financing or co-production which emerge may materialise a few weeks later at Cannes.

The projects will be presented in pitch form on the morning of Saturday 6th April, before a jury that will award the Région Sud Prize which comes with €20,000 in aid, as well as before a panel of professionals on 6th April in the afternoon and 7th April in the morning.
