Review of the Unifrance Rendez-Vous with French Cinema

From January 11 to 14, 72 artists met with 131 journalists from 29 countries at the 10th Rendez-Vous event in Paris.

Around 800 interviews were held relating to the 57 films slated for upcoming release in one or more of the countries represented at the Rendez-Vous event. Unifrance would like to express its thanks to the 72 French artists who took part in these interviews: Cédric Anger, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Laurent de Bartillat, Frédéric Beigbeder, Véra Belmont, Samuel Benchetrit, Nicolas Boukhrief, Catherine Breillat, Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi, Alexandre Bustillo, Marc Caro, Isabelle Carré, Cécile Cassel, Laetitia Casta, Antoine de Caunes, Nicolas Cazalé, Claude Chabrol, Laurent Charbonnier, Alain Corneau, Clovis Cornillac, Marie-Josée Croze, Emmanuelle Cuau, Linh Dan Pham, Jean-Pierre Darroussin, Lola Doillon, Jean Dujardin, André Dussollier, Léa Fazer, José Garcia, Xavier Gens, Éric Guirado, Hafsia Herzi, Clotilde Hesme, Luc Jacquet, Gilles Jacob, Abdellatif Kechiche, Nicolas Klotz, Jan Kounen, Nadine Labaki, Patrice Leconte, Virginie Ledoyen, Claude Lelouch, Benoît Magimel, Gilles de Maistre, Franck Mancuso, Julien Maury, Gilbert Melki, Gilbert Melki, Nadir Mokneche, Emmanuel Mouret, Michel Ocelot, Bulle Ogier, Jean-Marie Olivier, François Ozon, Alysson Paradis, Nicolas Philibert, Jocelyn Quivrin, Charlotte Rampling, Aurélien Recoing, Etienne Robial, Patrick Rotman, Ludivine Sagnier, Eric-Emmanuel Schmidt, Barbet Schroeder, Céline Sciamma, Julien Séri, Florent Emilio Siri, Michel Spinosa, Alice Taglioni, André Téchiné, Laurent Tirard, and Régis Wargnier.

Also as part of the event, over 500 foreign distributors made the trip to Paris to secure acquisition deals for the most recent offerings from the 34 film export companies present at the film market. 2,754 admissions were registered at the 71 screenings held at the film market. This figure is lower than last year’s (3,040 admissions), but similar to that of 2006 (2,859 admissions). This slight decline reflects a drop in the number of screenings held (77 screenings last year). The average attendance rate per screening at the film market was 39 spectators, showing a considerable increase over last year (40 spectators per screening). The most popular screenings were Passe-passe (Off and Running), held Saturday at 5 p.m. (130 admissions), Les Femmes de l'ombre (Female Agents) held Saturday at 11 a.m. (115 admissions), and Enfin Veuve (A Widow At Last), held Friday at 11 a.m. (97 admissions).

According to initial estimates, this 10th Rendez-Vous event confirms industry professionals’ growing interest in the event, with numerous acquisition transactions in the pipeline. Negotiations should be finalized by the time of the Berlin International Film Festival.
