) and his project The Rope.

It’s also worth noting that five of the 18 Co-Production Village projects will form an integral part of this year’s Focus, dedicated to Switzerland and the Alpine regions of France and Italy.

On the occasion of its 4th edition, the Talent Village’s ambassador is set to be Nadav Lapid who will meet the eight selected filmmakers during the Les Arcs Film Festival. Before presenting their projects to the Industry Village, the eight candidates will take part in three days of workshops at Les Arcs, where they will benefit from conversations with and advice from Danish producer Katrin Pors (Snowglobe), international sales agent Olivier Barbier (mk2 Films), Giona Nazzaro (artistic director of the Locarno Film Festival) and French musical supervisor Martin Caraux (Bande Originale). The jury entrusted with the Talent Village Award (consisting of €1,000, courtesy of the festival) will be composed of Savina Neirotti (the programmer of Venice Production Bridge and the Biennale College), Thomas Rosso (the general coordinator of Cannes’ Critics’ Week) and Laure Caillol (a distributor for Haut et Court).
