For the professionals

  • The program : 

Two days of meetings reserved for audiovisual production and publishing professionals: the Publishers Market, discussions about the market of literary adaptation in series, roundtables, professional meetings… and all the events for the public.

  • Le Marché des éditeurs

A “B to B” meeting between audiovisual producers and literary publishers.

The selection of the represented publishers is done by a call for projects organised by the SCELF, partner of the event, for its members, and a call for applications held by the ARL PACA (Agence régionale du Livre Provence-Alpes-Côtes d’Azur).

Accredited participants to the Publishers Market will be able to book their appointments in advance through a dedicated reservation interface.

Appointments are thus guaranteed and the schedule is perfectly managed.

A brochure will be sent in advance to the accredited participants with a selection of pitches giving an overview of the works available and presented during the Market.

  • How to get accredited? 

The professional meetings will be accessible upon presentation of an accreditation.

The allocation of professional and press accreditations is at the discretion of the festival, upon prior request.
