Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

A well-timed event – given that it’s due to take place just a few weeks before the European Film Market at Berlinale – the Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris, organised by UniFrance, makes use of a formula that has proved to be very successful thus far. Its 21nd edition, which is due to take place from 17 to 21 January, will certainly be no exception, with the market gearing up to welcome more than 500 buyers this year (with a few platforms joining more traditional distributors), as well as 45 French international sales companies, whose line-ups consist of at least 160 French films (including co-productions), 46 of which will be showcased as market premieres. And that’s not forgetting the XXL junket, which will encourage conversation between 100 French artists (filmmakers and actors) and 120 journalists from 32 different countries.
