This year, *Rachid Bouchareb* has accepted the invitation from the Institut français to act as patron for La Fabrique Cinéma 2020, and has continued to be involved in the programme by supporting the online format. After reading and meeting with all the projects, Rachid Bouchareb gave them a master class, hosted by RFI culture journalist Elizabeth Lequeret, with the support of the international radio station. Each of the participants were also given time to discuss their projects with him individually. Rachid Bouchareb started out in the early 1980s with a series of short films, before directing his first feature film, Bâton Rouge, in 1985. Twelve feature films followed, with three receiving Oscar nominations for Best Foreign Language Film: Dust of Life in 1996, Days of Glory in 2006 and Outside the Law in 2010. Days of Glory and Outside the Law were presented in the main competition of the Festival de Cannes, and the leading male roles in Days of Glory won the best actor award collectively. In 2009, actor Sotigui Kouyaté won the Golden Bear for best actor in the film London River at the Berlin International Film Festival. In 2011, Rachid Bouchareb directed the first film in his American trilogy, Just Like a Woman, which was followed by Two Men in Town (La Voie de l’Ennemi) in 2014 and Belleville Cop (Le Flic de Belleville) in 2018. He also directed two mini-series for television: Frères d’Armes and Champions de France, portraits of men and women, mainly from the French colonial empire, who fought for France (Frères d’Armes) or won sports trophies as French competitors (Champions de France). In addition to his work as a director, Rachid Bouchareb has produced films by Bruno Dumont, Ziad Doueiri and Karim Dridi, alongside Jean Bréhat and Muriel Merlin in the production company 3B Productions.

16:00 (1:30) DIGITAL EUROPEAN FILM FORUM

Shaping the future of the European audiovisual ecosystem: what role for the European Union?

The COVID outbreak and containment measures have led to closure of cinema theaters, standstill of productions, cancellation of festivals and markets. The impact on the economy and employment has been very severe and has affected the entire value chain from the creation of the films and audiovisual works to their distribution. Even TV broadcasters, despite beating viewing records, have seen their advertising revenues decreasing due to the disruption of economic activities. While global subscription VOD services have increased their revenues and market position during this period, cinemas, festivals, producers, distributors, creators, are struggling to survive, risking bankruptcies and layoffs, especially for the many self-employed and freelancers of the sector. The whole industry of these small businesses that sustain our cultural diversity, is at stake. Given these unprecedented challenges, Member States have taken initiatives to support the sector including dedicated State aid or deferral of social security contributions in line with an EU temporary framework and enhanced flexibility within Creative Europe MEDIA. Through the Next Generation EU, the Commission has also taken important measures by including the cultural and creative industries as one of target areas in a number of new initiatives designed to facilitate the European economic and social recovery. This digital conference, organised in partnership with the Marché du Film de Cannes, will offer a unique opportunity: - to take stock of the present situation, - to work on a common vision of the audiovisual ecosystem, - to discuss ways to strengthen the audiovisual ecosystem, and - to discuss the role of the European Union.

Speakers: Agnieszka Holland, Daniela Elstner, Marco Chimenz, Marjorie Paillon, Pierre Lescure, Sabine Verheyen

 

16:00 (1:30) – NEXT EMPOWERING THE FILM INDUSTRY WITH TECH: THE POTENTIAL OF A EUROPEAN FILM REGISTRY.

In 2018 Ernst & Young entered into a partnership with Microsoft to deliver a blockchain solution for the gaming industry, with the aim of securing IP rights and royalty payments. Nordic Blockchain Lead Magnus Jones will present the solution and how the gaming industry experience might benefit the film industry. A registry of film rights secured by a public blockchain as a public good ensures rights holders a secure chain of title and waterfall payments. May it also be the gateway for content to reach its audience independent of big tech and OTT platforms? Magnus Jones and Alan R. Milligan of White Rabbit will present examples and discuss with the audience afterwards. Speakers: Alan Milligan, Magnus Jones

CPH:DOX Documentary Production now - and beyond! Meet two of Denmark’s most skilled documentary film producers and learn how they navigate production and distribution, while pandemic precautions jeopardises shooting and production and festival cancellations complicate their launch and distribution. Monica Hellström of Final Cut for Real is one of this year’s ‘Producers on the Move’ and her film ‘Flee’ (directed by Jonas Poher Rasmussen) has just been selected by Cannes Film Festival, that is not physically happening in 2020. Also, she is in full swing producing ‘A House Made of Splinters’, a new film of recently Peabody-awarded Simon Lereng Wilmont. Sara Stockmann of Sonntag Pictures is financing ‘Hana Korea’ (directed by Frederik Sølberg) that won the Eurimages award at CPH:FORUM and she’s behind ‘Being Erico’ (directed by Jannik Splidsboel) that won the Nordic:DOX competition at CPH:DOX 2020, the first fully digital festival that has marked the way festivals are coping with the Covid-19 crisis. How do they adjust their strategies in order to secure the financing of their projects, traditionally anchored in film festival’s industry platforms, nowadays also happening online? What trends do they see in the way documentaries are being produced and how do they expect the production landscape to change, once the pandemic is over? Speakers: Monica Hellström & Sara Stockmann, in conversation with Katrine Kiilgaard & Tereza Simikova.
