10h30    12h00 - Théâtre municipal What's Next: The Age of Anger
Théâtre municipal In the pipeline Professionals only

The Age of Anger, an adaptation of Nando López's novel of the same name, purports to be a naturalistic and, at the same time, poetic portrait of today's adolescence. The main character is Marcos (17), who we dissect along four episodes through the eyes of four characters who know him very well: his "girlfriend" Sandra, his older brother Ignacio, his friend Raúl and his tutor Irene.
When Marcos's father is killed, everything points to him. But has he been able to do something so dreadful? Who's really Marcos?

 

Case study with Nando Lopez (Writer), Javier Pons (Executive Producer, Globomedia), Mireia Nando Javier and Montse Garcia (Head of drama, Atresmedia TV), Jesús Rodrigo (Director).

A boat named Arianna. A journey. Twelve passengers.
Families wave goodbye from the pier of the port, as the boat leaves for an ocean crossing, moving away until it disappears over the horizon.

A year later, mysteriously, it is found. It is now a hulk. And on board, only seven people are still alive. What happened to the others? What secret are the survivors hiding? What have they become?

17h00    18h00 - Théâtre municipal European content fiction: when Spain meets France
Théâtre municipal Discussions Professionals only

With Conecta FICTION

 

Spain and France have a long tradition of working together on audiovisual projects, especially in the field of cinema, but more than ever, collaboration between these two European countries is booming for television content. These collaborations are established at all levels: from the development of projects, to their financing through co-production agreements, the adaptation of formats of successful series, broadcasting on different television screens, or even strategic agreements at the business level.

 

At a time when alliances are essential in a very competitive global scenario, we will analyse what are the keys to making these collaborations bear fruitful: how to adapt great series to totally different audiences, how to cross cultural barriers within co-production, how to direct sales to such disparate audiences, how to co-finance, etc…

 

Speakers:

Alexandre Piel (ARTE, Franco-Spanish co-production "Hierro")

Fernando Navarro (screenwriter of "La cosmética del enemigo" adapted from French novel by Amélie Nothomb)

Charité Royale Discussions Professionals only

Asserting your rights as an author

 

In French only.

 

For authors, getting their rights recognised or finding solutions to conflicts or disagreements can be a difficult task. However, there is no shortage of structures dedicated to their defence: SACD, AMAPA, trade unions and professional organisations, etc. All too often authors get discouraged and give up on their defence.

 

How, then, can we simplify the path to better protection for authors? What recourses exist? How can we create conditions that allow them to devote all their energy to creation? Initiated by the SACD, this meeting will provide answers to help authors see clearly and assert their rights.

 

With : Representatives of the SACD, the Amapa, the French Screenwriters Guild and the U2R.

“The French don't know how to make believable, deep and spectacular 'historical' series": myth or reality?

 

In French Only

 

Since the start of the ORTF, and then in the 80s and 90s, French television developed a real tradition of historical drama. One might have the impression that that tradition was forgotten in order to breathe some new life into them. This ambitious genre, appreciated by the public and creators, is of considerable importance in the television landscape. Our neighbours, particularly the Anglo-Saxons, produce a colossal amount of them, often with great talent and impressive budgets.


What is the situation in France today? With some of those who have ventured into this field - with success - we will discuss the specific challenges of writing, directing and producing historical series. Why talk about the past? To what extent can we remain faithful to reality? How to avoid the "period drama" or historical trap? And how to succeed in the production challenge that is an ambitious historical drama?
 

A discussion under the patronage of the U2R union (Union des réalisatrices et réalisateurs).

 

Chaired by Arnaud Malherbe (screenwriter and director)

Théâtre municipal Discussions Professionals only

In the post #metoo era, the need to create safe, fair and dignified conditions for all those involved in filming intimate scenes is a given. "Intimacy coordination" has become a key concern on British sets and one that is still under-addressed in the rest of Europe.

Since 2014, Ita O'Brien has been a pioneer in this field, and has developed a set of "good practices" that have been widely adopted and praised by the industry as well as associations. She has played a key role in some of the most iconic series in recent years, from Sex Education and Normal People to I May Destroy You. A role to which the creator of the latter, Michaela Coel, paid a vibrant tribute at the last BAFTA ceremony: "Thank you for your existence in our industry. For making the space safe [...]".

 

We will have the honour of giving the floor to Ita O'Brien in a hybrid session.

The hidden loot from a robbery. Two women from opposite ends of society. Bread baking and money laundering. Greed, revenge and unlikely alliances in a superficial world. Those are a few of the ingredients in Dough.

Malou lives in a large house in an affluent neighborhood, though she is bankrupt. But miracles do happen. A bag containing 47 million SEK – the loot from a robbery – ends up with her. She begins a money laundering operation, using a bakery as a front.
Liana is a poor single mom trying to get her life back on track. Her ex-boyfriend is in jail for a robbery where the loot was 47 million SEK.
Soon the two women’s paths will cross in ways they never could imagine.

Journey offers a wonderful escape from the current isolated reality. Two middle-aged men, who’ve lost their way, tackle their most intimate feelings on a road trip through the strikingly diverse and mystical nature of the Icelandic Westfjords. One has lost his connection with reality in the wake of his success while the other is at rock bottom after having lost everything he holds dear.

Their journey, initially intended as a fun road trip to reignite their friendship, takes an unexpected turn that forces them to confront their own feelings, manhood, and pride.

Charité Royale Discussions Professionals only

With EPC (European Producers Club)

 

The independent sector has never been so lively in terms of TV drama, thanks to the growth in the demand, and in particular to the success of the streamers in European local market.

Commissioning TV Drama is flowing, occupying all aspects in the industry. This is the good news that everyone can read in the newspaper. But does it correspond to the reality?

Actually there is a hidden reverse of the medal: the contractual conditions proposed by the streamers are not spreading so much happiness… not only for producers but also directors and actors.

The US streamers are here to stay and we are happy about it, and we are all willing to have a show commissioned, but not at any price.

But how can you negotiate with these powerful giants when you are an independent ? What is your bargaining power? What are the solutions the industry is setting up to protect the independent sector? And what role can the regulators play there?

To discuss these new ways of working together at creating ambitious TV Series, whilst preserving the European savoir faire, directors, authors and producers, all representing the European independent sector will share their views in Fontainebleau at the occasion of an exclusive conference, organised by the European Producers Club with the participation of the Federation of European Screen Directors.

A Royal Secret is the story of the ultimate forbidden love. A love that had to be kept from the public at all costs, but which eventually got out, and led to one of the worst miscarriages of justice that Sweden has ever witnessed.

The year is 1932 and in a final attempt to save his restaurant, ex-con man Kurt Haijby appeals for a private audience with the King Gustav V of Sweden. What starts off as a formal encounter soon turns into a romantic evening filled with passion. But when the fling turns into a secret relationship, the King’s advisors do everything to stop the affair. Kurt is up against forces that will destroy his marriage, throw him into a mental asylum and deport him to Nazi-Germany.

Me and the Others tells the story of a character who struggles with himself and the world. He is allowed to reshuffle the cards in each episode. But what happens when the others suddenly behave the way we want them to? What happens to the "I" when this constantly changes its relationship to the environment, when new constellations with "the others" repeatedly arise, which inevitably escalate? Me and the Othersis a discourse series, funny and tragic. A surreal trip through the minefields of identity and ego.

Cinéma Ermitage Screenings Open to the public

This fearless, frank and provocative series explores the question of sexual consent in contemporary life and how, in our modern landscape of dating and relationships, we make the distinction between liberation and exploitation. Following triumph from a piece of writing that garnered internet acclaim, Arabella (Coel) - easily distracted, non-committal and carefree - finds herself feted as the ‘voice of her generation’, with an agent, a book commission and a helluva lot of pressure. After being sexually assaulted in a nightclub, her life changes irreversibly and Arabella is forced to reassess everything: her career, her friends, even her family. As Arabella struggles to come to terms with what has happened, she begins a journey of self-discovery.
