48 premieres at the Rendez-vous with French Cinema

The 17th Rendez-vous with French Cinema gets under way today in Paris, acting as a perfect springboard for sales and promotion activities just weeks away from the Sundance, Rotterdam and Berlin Festivals. Running until 19 January and organised by UniFrance, it serves as an opportunity for 36 French international sales agents to screen 90 French films (including 48 market world premieres) and negotiate deals for the entirety of their line-ups with 600 distributors hailing from 50 countries. The event will also be the setting for the world’s biggest press junket (featuring 135 journalists and 1,000 interviews with 120 French artists) and the launch of the fifth edition of My French Film Festival (16 January-16 February – read the article).

UniFrance’s Paris-based event offers some excellent opportunities for distributors to guarantee themselves a competitive edge, in the same way as all these forthcoming films do. All of the French sales agents (including Memento Films International, Bac Films, Elle Driver, Alfama, Coproduction Office, Urban Distribution, Wide, Premium Films, Reel Suspects, Ecce Films, La vie est belle and so on) will be taking part and are looking to the future – much like StudioCanal, which is kicking off pre-sales for the animated film Un monde truqué [+see also:
