This year this Produire au Sud formula will include two complementary training stages with special focus on scriptwriting and production in order to help directors to push and explore their narrative and strategy as much as possible.
Both steps will be led by scriptwriting consultants Gualberto Ferrari and Jérémie Dubois, as well as with Claire Lajoumard, Thomas Pibarot and June Wu.
First stage PAS Taipei: 2019, October 16-20
Second stage : 2020, March 3-6
Third stage : 2020, July 5-9
The contents of the workshop will make it possible to reinforce the initial training given to the participants last July. These complementary stages represent a further and crucial level of support in the development of the film projects, especially on the artistic level. In the medium term, the professionalisation of these young producers and filmmakers will allow them to draw up a production strategy adapted to their project and to choose the relevant partners in the European film industry.
