Le Groupe Ouest & Fondation Gan for Cinema

The Fondation Gan and Groupe Ouest co-created THE SELECTION, an annual event organised in Paris. The initiative arose from their exchanges with the authors whom they support.

The filmmakers and scriptwriters with new projects of feature films (1st or 2nd) wanted a place, a moment, a workshop allowing them to present their projects to new producers or co-producers, and to future professional partners outside their usual networks.
THE SELECTION : a privileged moment for scriptwriters and producers
THE SELECTION is designed as a privileged moment of discovery and exchanges between professionals around scripts in development. The event supports the emergence of 12 projects of feature films:
6 detected by Groupe Ouest’s Yearly Selections, 6 choose among the prize-winners of the Fondation Gan.
The annual event is organised in two phases:
First, the 12 authors selected present their projects.
Then, the producers have a time of individual meeting with the authors.
The first edition was organised on March 12th 2015 at Groupama’s head office.
