Produire au Sud is a workshop focusing on the outline and structure of coproduction within the film industry. The workshop aims to familiarize young producers based in Africa, Latin America, and Asia with a variety of important tools and international coproduction techniques by coaching individual projects in development.
It is actually the most important workshop of the year, as it lasts 7 days and invites each year a dozen of international and europeans professionals as experts. Each year, it takes place in Nantes in the framework of the Festival des 3 Continents and in partnership with the Institute for Advanced Study (IEA-Nantes).
It is dedicated to any producer from the 3 Continents paired with a director who currently develops a feature fiction fiction project. More about regulations.
The workshop took place in Nantes November 19-25, 2018.

Institute for Advanced Study (IAS)
The Produire au Sud workshop takes place in the IAS. The Institute for Advanced Study provides an inspirational setting for intellectual innovation. The Institute’s mission to bring together internationally renowned scholars, writers and innovators from many different countries, working in many different disciplines. The scholars, temporarily freed from their normal professional obligations, have the opportunity to pursue their studies in a spectacular building overlooking the Loire River. They have the opportunity to work on their projects either individually or collectively.
The main objective of the Nantes Institute for Advanced Study is to create a new type of relationship between Western scholars and those from the rest of the world. By encouraging the latter to put forward their viewpoints we hope to achieve a true diversity of approaches to current problems posed by globalization.
