Call for applications for Emergence 2015

Founded in 1998 by Élisabeth Depardieu, who is in charge of its artistic direction, Emergence helps young writer-directors to develop their debut feature projects during a three-week residency by giving them the chance to film two sequences from their screenplay, with support provided on an artistic level (including some well-known sponsors) as well as through professional production resources. 

Among others, Emergence has supported feature debuts by Mia Hansen-Love (All Is Forgiven [+see also:
