After revealing its programme (see the article) and the selection of the 21 projects in the Coproduction Village (see the news), the Les Arcs European Film Festival (the ninth edition of which is set to unspool from 16-23 December) has unveiled the list of the 15 films in post-production that will be presented on Sunday 17 December as part of the Work-in-Progress sidebar. Every year, the event entices a slew of international sales agents, distributors and representatives of major festivals to the Alpine resort, where they are able to discover the selection of an initiative that has previously lifted the lid on myriad titles that then went on to enjoy some extremely successful runs (some such examples being the recent movies I Am Not a Witch [+leggi anche:

The selection rustled up this year by Frédéric Boyer, the artistic director of the Les Arcs Film Festival, includes movies helmed by France’s Marie Losier, Germany’s Sabrina Sarabi and Ziska Riemann, Serbia’s Maša Neškovic, Italy’s Andrea Caccia, Spaniard Ibon Cormenzana, Belgium’s Lukas Dhont, Denmark’s Carl Marott, the Czech Republic’s Michal Hoguenauer, Finland’s Juha Lehtola, Ireland’s Ciaran Cassidy, the UK’s Jamie Jones, and Russia’s Natalia Meschaninova and Alexey Fedorchenko, not to mention a feature that sees Portugal’s Gabriel Abrantes and the UK’s Daniel Schmidt join forces.
A jury comprising Charles Tesson (artistic director of the Cannes Critics’ Week), Elad Samorzik (director of the Jerusalem International Film Festival) and Tamara Tatishvili (the Georgian representative of Eurimages) will hand out two awards. Eight films are in the running for the TitraFilm Award (€10,000 in image and/or audio post-production work), and the other seven (highlighted with an asterisk in the list below) for the Eurimages Award (which comes with €50,000 and is intended for groundbreaking projects in terms of their style, content and production aspects).
