On August 26, the Unifrance head office in Paris hosted a new edition of the "Du Court au Long" (From Short to Long) Meetings, which bring together short film sector members of our association and professionals from the feature film industry.
At this event, held in the presence of Frédéric Bereyziat, deputy director of UniFrance films, our Short Film Department had the pleasure of welcoming Sophie Lacoste (UDI - Urban Distribution International) and Olivier Heitz (mk2 films) as guest participants. Over a period of 90 minutes, they took part in a Q & A session with UniFrance members and discussed issues surrounding film programming, distribution, and international acquisitions. These discussions also provided an opportunity for participants to address subjects such as problems encountered by French films in accessing theaters—a challenging issue and the lifeblood of the movie industry—and, consequently, the implications for relations with exhibitors, as well as the fierce competition in the market to intervene as early as possible in projects with international ambitions.
Further meetings will be scheduled throughout the year.
