Produced by Jean Bréhat for 3B ProductionsJeanne will be the sequel to Jeannette, the Childhood of Joan of Arc (which was originally conceived for television), but no more details are available for the time being. As a reminder, over the summer Dumont shot Coincoin and the Extra-humans, the second season of the Li’l Quinquin series, a Taos Films and Arte production that will once again spawn a film version.

Another advance on receipts goes to Alice et le Maire, the second feature by Nicolas Pariser, following The Great Game [+see also:

 (revealed at Locarno in 2015, and winner of the Louis-Delluc Prize for Best Debut Film the same year). Produced by Emmanuel Agneray for Bizibi Productions, the film, which will be co-produced by Arte France Cinéma, will star Fabrice Luchini and Anaïs Demoustier, and will portray the encounter between a young Ecole Normale student and a small-town mayor in the midst of a professional crisis. 

The CNC will also be throwing its weight behind Il n’y pas d’ombre dans le désert by Israel’s Yossi Aviram, the sophomore feature by the filmmaker, following The Dune [+see also:

 and in the Berlinale Forum in 2004 with Paradise Now), which will be produced by CG Cinéma, and Leur Mélusine by Germany’s Claus Drexel (nominated for the Louis-Delluc Prize in 2014 for Au bord du monde [+see also:
