Flanders Image has picked Bart Van Langendonck of the young Brussels-based production house CCCP as its very first 'Producer in the Picture' to be showcased during the Cannes Film Festival.

Only eight months after its launch in September 2002, CCCP has some 15 projects at different stages of production or development, including award-winning stage director Wayn Traub's feature Maria-Dolores and Frederic Brival's Hot Dogs which will be screening as a 'work in progress'.

Vam Langendonck will be in Cannes to find partners for such projects as Koen Mortier's adaptation of Flemish best-selling author Herman Brusselmans' novel Ex-drummer, Bram Van Paesschen's mockumentary Smokescreen Covering Brussels, and Pink Devils about the gay Belgian football team at the Sydney Gay Games, directed by one of their team mates, Lars Damoiseaux.

The 'Producers in the Picture' initiative was launched by Flanders Image this year to support emerging film producers making their first appearance in Cannes.
