Jerome Paillard, the Director of the Cannes Marche, speaks about the new initiatives this year in Cannes and how the first time producers’ Producers Workshop will unfold.
Launched in 2011, the Producers Workshop is a program designed for producers who have little or no prior experience with the Marché du Film and the Festival de Cannes or on the international scene. The program is limited to 300 participants.
During the first three days of the Festival (May 15-17, 2013) the Workshop provides a series of two daily sessions conducted by esteemed specialists on various subjects, including co-production and international financing, international sales, pitching skills, and a coaching session with top-notch consultants. The specific aim is in helping producers achieve their goals within the international market and get the most out of their participation at the Marché du Film and Festival de Cannes.
The Producers Workshop Group on Cinando.com includes all 300 participants. Here, you can present your company and projects and connect with fellow producers, distributors and sales agents from around the world. You can also use Cinando to communicate with the other participants.
