Fondation Gan & Le Groupe Ouest – Assessment of the first instance

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 film-makers 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 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 2015 SELECTION, organised on March 12th at Groupama’s head office and opened to the professionals interested in the detection of new projects of feature films – authors, directors, producers, distributors, sellers, agents – brought together over 120 people.

THE EVENT was organised in two phases:
Early in the afternoon, the 12 authors selected presented their projects.
In the second part of the afternoon, the producers had a time of individual meeting with the authors.
