Shoot the book !

Foreign professionals / French professionals
Shoot the book! is a program of professional meetings designed to support the presence of French publishers on the major international audiovisual markets and to promote the audiovisual adaptation of French literary works of fiction.

An initiative of the Institut français and the Société civile des éditeurs de langue française (SCELF), the Shoot the book! operation is organized during major international film events (Cannes Film Festival, American Film Market in Los Angeles, Shanghai International Film Festival, etc.).

This program proposes to bring together previously selected French publishers and international producers looking for future adaptation projects through :

  • A pitching session that offers publishers the opportunity to present books selected for their adaptation potential by a jury of international audiovisual professionals.
  • Individual meetings between producers and publishers
  • A program of meetings, round tables and conferences on the particularities and major trends of the international adaptation markets.
