Organised as part of the Film Market at the 69th Cannes Film Festival (11-22 May 2016) and intended to give a boost to international co-productions and maximise networking opportunities, the Producers Network has unveiled the programme for its 13th edition. Seven Spotlights are on the menu from 12-18 May, including five that focus, as usual, on producers who this time hail from Poland, the Netherlands, Canada, Mexico and South Africa.

It is interesting to note that there will be a first this year, as two of the Producers Network Spotlights will be dedicated to film projects: Films from Rio (Brazil) and Future Logic (Palestine).

Besides the Producers Network, the "Industry" programmes of the Cannes Film Festival’s Film Market (11-20 May 2016) include the round-tables and workshops taking place at the Next pavilion, hinging on innovation and the future of the film industry, the Doc Corner, which offers a space reserved for all documentary professionals, the workshops and seminars of the Producers Workshop, the Marché Mixers themed meetings, and the Works-in-Progress at Goes to Cannes.
