Cannes Film Festival L’Atelier 2022


Posted by Larry Gleeson


The Atelier (The Workshop) is hosting its eighteenth edition this year and will invite to the Cannes Film Festival 16 directors whose film projects have been deemed particularly promising.

L’Atelier was created in 2005 to encourage creative cinema and foster the emergence of a new generation of filmmakers in the world. To date, out of 231 projects supported until 2019, 182 have been completed and 19 are currently in pre-production.

In 2020, despite the health crisis, the filming of three projects was possible and twelve projects are currently in pre-production. For this 18th edition of L’Atelier, 15 projects from 15 countries have been selected, from the director at his debut to the confirmed filmmaker.

From May 22 to 27, meetings will be organized with the directors for professionals interested in their projects.

Stay tuned!

The Book of Projects and the registration forms for the events will be available in mid-April on the “Jeune Cinéma” website.
