  Come and meet with the 6 Films from Rio projects

Sunday May 15, 2016
3:00 pm to 5:00 pm @ Plage des Palmes

Films from Rio is a unique program co-organised with the Producers Network to bring six projects and their producers to three important industry environments in order to give them visibility and help find international co-producers and partners. RioMarket at Festival do Rio was their first stop in October 2015, where they were coached and prepared for their next market: Ventana Sur, where they pitched their projects for the first time to an international audience. They now finally arrive in Cannes to present their projects to you.

The projects:

  • Roller Coaster (Montanha Russa) by Vinícius Reis
    Producer: Gisela Camara (Tacacá Filmes)
  • Other Times (Outros Tempos) by Christiane Jatahy
    Producer: Tatiana Leite (Bubbles Project)
  • The Trace (O Rastro) by João Caetano Feyer
    Producer: Malu Miranda (Lupa Filmes)
  • Rivermovie by Ricardo Targino
    Producer: Ailton Franco Jr. (Franco Filmes)
  • Southwest Wind (Vento Sudoeste) by Angelo Defanti
    Producer: Bárbara Defanti (Sobretudo Produção)
  • The Serpent (A Serpente) by Jura Capela
    Producer: Elaine Soares (Oceano Cinematográfico)

If you didn't have a chance to meet them at Friday's Breakfast Meeting, each producer will be seated at a table and pitch its project to you.

To participate, please contact Tiphaine Guérin.

  Start off on the right foot at the Breakfast Meetings

Every morning at the Plage des Palmes, come sit with your international colleagues to meet our selected Guests of Honour while an expert Moderator leads the conversation, inviting them to share their valuable opinions in all aspects of financing, production and distribution, as well as their personal experience in the industry.

The Breakfast really is the “most important meal of the day”!

  Register for the Speed-Meeting with Funds

The Producers Network presents the 3rd edition of its Speed-Meeting with Funds! A special speed-meeting event aimed as an opportunity to meet a selection of film funds offering specific supports for international co-production.

Participants will meet in small groups with the Fund of their choice, changing tables every 30 minutes to exchange with four different film funds over the whole duration. The objective is not to pitch a project, but to learn about the specific rules of each Fund.
