Scores of cinemas around the world might still be closed on account of the health crisis (resulting in a huge number of films awaiting release and the prospect of hefty backlogs once movie-theatres are eventually given the green light), but the ability of film industry professionals to look to the future, not to mention the appeal of French films, both remain fully intact, as evidenced by the mighty battalion of 800 buyers, hailing from 59 countries, who have signed up for the 23rd Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in Paris, which will this year unfold online, between 13 and 15 January, under the aegis of UniFrance (steered by Executive Director Daniela Elstner and President Serge Toubiana). The event is preceded, today, by an assortment of online panels and keynote speeches, under the banner “Beyond Borders” (which can be followed live here), and will also host an XXL press junket involving 90 artists (filmmakers and actors) who are toplining a variety of French films - whose 2021 release is the subject of much excitement around the world - and who are scheduled to meet with 144 international journalists via videoconference as part of the Rendez-Vous event. All this, without forgetting the launch of the 11th MyFrenchFilmFestival on 15 January (article).

Over the course of the three-day online market, buyers will get to watch 67 French films (31 of which will be market premieres) via a dedicated and secure Cinando website, and will also get to negotiate over the 136 French productions or co-productions presented within the remarkably diverse line-ups put forward by the 44 French international sales agents in action.
