Goals of the Rendezvous of Francophone Creation
The primary objective of the Rendezvous of Francophone Creation is to facilitate and to catalyse encounters between European investors and Francophone producers with projects of television series in development possessing international potential.
Conversely to large programme markets, this event is about creating a convivial meeting place, a privileged and intimate working environment where Francophone producers will be able to meet foreign investors who are attentive and interested in Francophone production.
Principle of the Rendezvous of Francophone Creation
Over one afternoon, in a convivial location and in the framework of the Festival de la Fiction, meetings will be held between European professionals invited to La Rochelle, whether they be producers, distributors, or broadcasters, and Francophone producers who have developing television series with international potential.
An Event Structured Into Four Steps
The Festival will launch a call for projects aimed at Francophone producers with a television series in development which has international potential and an author’s contract. Around fifteen projects will be selected.
The chosen producers will have the opportunity to meet foreign investors (Amazon, Beta Film, ZDF Enterprise, RTVE, ITV Studios, Copenhagen Film Fund, etc.) interested in potentially participating in the co-production, the pre-purchase or MG of financing of these television series with international potential.
