Written by the director himself, the story revolves around Étienne, who heads up to Paris to start his film studies at university. There he meets Mathias and Jean-Noël, who share his passion. But the year to come will turn their hopes and dreams on their heads, forcing them to endure ordeals of friendship, love and art that they never saw coming... 

Executive-produced by Frédéric Niedermayer for Moby Dick Films, Mes Provinciales is being co-produced by ARP Sélection (which will handle the French distribution) and is being backed by the Arte Cofinova Sofica. The shoot, which kicked off on 10 January, took place entirely in Paris and the Paris region.

For the record, Moby Dick Films has produced all eight feature films directed by Emmanuel Mouret, and the Paris-based company is also preparing the filmmaker’s upcoming movie, Mademoiselle de Joncquières, which will be co-produced by Arte France Cinéma and is due to start principal photography in the second half of the year.
