Between December 9th and 15th 2023, ten of the short film directors who were recently selected at La Semaine de la Critique have presented their first feature film projects. For the second year, Morelia IFF’s invitation in Cannes extends to welcoming a Mexican filmmaker to the Next Step workshop.
During a week-long workshop - first at the Moulin d’Andé and then Paris - they were guided by international consultants who have provided advice on their script, helped them assess what each script implies in terms of direction and production, as well as market release. Directors also have had the opportunity to meet composers to think about the musical world of their film with the support of SACEM. On the last day, an event has been organised with professionals of the French film industry, to allow filmmakers to present their projects, establish contact and build relationships for future collaborations.
