    Dedicated to first feature films, the Focus CoPro’ shines a light on short filmmakers taking the path of feature films. 

    With professionals from the Feature Film Industry attending the Festival de Cannes, it is the perfect opportunity to gather the people behind projects and the producers, sales agents, film funds, institutions… Projects looking for a co-production are presented to major actors of the Industry during a pitch session.

    The Focus CoPro’ gathers filmmakers from the 2020 Cannes Short Film Selections – Official Competition, Critic’s Week and Director’s Fortnight – as well as Short Film Corner participants.
    It is a unique opportunity to discover renowned short film talents, whom already have an impact on today’s cinema and whom will confirm their artistic vision with their first feature.
    The Focus CoPro’ brings to light filmmakers to whom we deeply appreciate the work and guide them into the presentation of their projects in front of key professionals from the Film Market.

    From a perspective of helping with script-development, one of the selected projects will benefit from a 3-week residency program with the Pop Up Film Residency.

    In order to build accurate collaborations with different initiatives and to develop our link with European producers, one project selected by from La Incubadora – The Screen is included to the program.

    The date of the pitch session will be announced soon, and is followed by 'one-to-one' meetings with the attending professionals.
