Also attending the event will be Noémie Lvovsky (accompanied by her editor Michel Klochendler), Sandrine Veysset, Céline Sciamma (with her casting director Christelle Baras) and Laurence Ferreira Barbosa (accompanied by her producer Paulo Branco).
Paul Englebert (HD post-production specialist), Dominique Besnehard (producer), Farid Chaouche (executive producer) and Alain Besse (Advanced Technical Image and Sound Commission) will also be present.
The eight directors selected for this edition include Spain’s Celia Galan Julve (project: Rosa Guzman está viva), the UK’s Peter Mackie Burns (White Male Heart, produced in association with Brocken Spectre), Switzerland’s Germinal Roaux (La durée d’un instant - CAB Productions), Belgium’s François Pirot (Mobil-Home - Ekletik) and France’s Antoine Barraud (Le Traversier - Château-rouge Productions) , Héléna Klotz (Le festin des chiens - Les Productions Bagheera), Paul Saintillan (Crénom ! - Ecce Films) and Rebecca Zlotowski (Belle-Epine - Les Films Velvet).
