Since its creation in 2005, L’Atelier has been stimulating creative filmmaking and encouraging the emergence of a new generation of filmmakers. By inviting directors and their producers to meet hundreds of potential partners during the Festival de Cannes, L’Atelier offers its participants access to international co-production, thereby maximizing their chances of completing their projects. So far, out of 126 projects presented over the last eight years, 83 have been completed and 29 are currently in pre-production.
For L’Atelier’s 9th edition, 15 projects from 14 countries have been selected, amongst them is the documentary/fiction hybrid film Out In The Streets, by filmmakers Jasmina Metwaly and Philip Rizk.
Out In The Streets is the first Egyptian film to ever be selected for L'Atelier. For Further Information, check out Cinefondation's website here: http://www.cinefondation.com/en/atelierinformations
