A total of 21 projects will be presented at the development and financing platform.


Caroline Deruas, Jonathan Nossiter and David Verbeek will be among the directors presenting their upcoming projects at the eighth edition of the Les Arcs Coproduction Village (Dec 10-13).

A total of 24 projects will presented at the three-day event unfolding within the Les Arcs European Film Festival (10-17) which announced the bulk of its programme last week.

Verbeek will present his long-gestating vampire project Dead & Beautiful.

Jonathan Nossiter will be at the market with The Last Words, his big screen adaptation of France-based Argentine writer Santiago Amigorena’s novel Mes derniers mots revolving around the last two members of the human race as they contemplate a world destroyed by mankind. 

Deruas will present her second feature Sad Liza after Daydreams which premiered at the Locarno Film Festival over the summer.

Two animation projects have also made it into this year’s selection, Dutch experimental animator Rosto’s Mind My Gap and A Childhood of Martha Jane Canary, about the youth of Calamity Jane, which is the latest feature-length animation from Rémi Chayé after Long Way North.

A final project, selected under a partnership with the Torino Film Lab, will announced on November 25, following the Torino Film Festival awards ceremony.
