Digital format for Unifrance Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris

UniFrance presents the 23rd Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in Paris

Our Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris, which will begin next week, is part of a long list of festivals and markets whose format has changed radically. We hence wanted to add a day of reflection to the Rendez-vous's usual program, involving participants from all over the world. We look forward to seeing you on January 12, 2021... in digital format. Nearly 90 artists will take part in digital interviews from a physical location in Paris. They will be in contact with 140 international journalists. And 800 buyers will see film previews.

May you all enjoy a great Rendez-vous abundant with cinematographic discoveries.




Serge Toubiana & Daniela Elstner,
President and Executive Director of UniFrance 

For the 23rd year running, UniFrance is organizing the Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in Paris will open physically with a number of screenings of films presented at the market organized in various European cities on Monday, January 11, and Tuesday, January 12.

The Day of Professional Meetings titled Beyond Borders 2021 - Export Meetings will be held on Tuesday, January 12. This event will be entirely devoted to the issues concerning the export of French films to foreign markets. All details about the day's program can be found here.

The Film Market will be officially opened on the evening of Tuesday, January 12, with an online screening of Eric Besnard. Following the opening, 67 films (including 31 premieres) will be presented to foreign buyers in the presence of 44 French sales companies.

A pitch session aimed at buyers, pre-recorded by the films' sales agents, will be broadcast on the morning of Wednesday, January 13.

Press junket

Around one hundred artists (actors and directors) from the French films that are planned for release around the world in 2021 will meet online with the 144 accredited international journalists during three days of interviews held via video conference. The interviews will be conducted from a prestigious Parisian hotel, with the styling of hair and makeup for the artists participating in the 2021 Rendez-Vous event provided by Parfums Givenchy - under the direction of Nicolas Degennes.

In 2020, 1329 interviews were conducted during the press junket.

As was the case last year, the official studio photograph for the Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in Paris will be taken by the photographer Philippe Quaisse.

The Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in Paris benefits from the invaluable support of: the French government – the CNC – the Institut Français – PROCIREP – TitraFilm – Wallonie-Bruxelles Images – Cinando – Piper-Heidsieck – Parfums Givenchy – Le Film Français – Variety
