Written by the director (who studied at La Fémis and shot to fame in the Cannes Critics’ Week in 2011 with the short film Junior), the main character in the story is 16-year-old Justine. All the members of her family are veterinary doctors and vegetarians. On her first day at vet school, she dramatically strays from her family principles when she eats meet, and she soon faces unexpected consequences when her true self arises.

Produced by Jean des Forêts for Petit Film, Raw is being co-produced by Paris-based outfit Rouge International (Julie Gayet and Nadia Turincev) and by Belgian company Frakas Productions (Jean-Yves Roubin and Cassandre Warnauts). Having been pre-purchased by Canal+, Ciné+, RTBF and VooTV, the feature is also backed by the advance on receipts from the CNC (which also provided the movie with development aid), the Belgian Tax Shelter via Casa Kafka, Ezekiel Film Productions, Wallimage-Bruxellimage, the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, the Arte/Cofinova 8 Sofica, the TorinoFilmLab, the Media/Creative programme and Ciclic (which provided writing aid). Interestingly, the project was selected by such platforms as the Villa Medici/Institut Français, TorinoFilmLab FrameWork, Frontières@Brussels 
and the Venice Gap-Financing Market.

The shoot, which will last 38 days, will take place in the veterinary clinic at the University of Liège, Belgium, with Belgian DoP Ruben Impens (The Broken Circle Breakdown [+see also:
