Every year, the Festival de Cannes Residence welcomes 12 young filmmakers from all over the world who are working on their first or second feature film. A jury selects 6 candidates for each of the two four-and-a-half-month sessions per year.
The candidates are selected on the strength of the short films, or the 1st feature, that they have already directed as well as on their planned feature and the reasons why they wish to participate in the Residence’s programme.
The selection for the next session (March 1st – July 15th 2010) will take place from:
Final date for applications: September 15th 2009 (arrival date)
Final Jury selection date: December 9th 2009
