What does it take to make a first feature? And how is it different to do so in France, as opposed to the U.S.? First-time filmmakers Marine Francen (The Sower), Xavier Legrand (Custody), Reinaldo Marcus Green (Monsters and Men, winner of the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Outstanding First Feature at Sundance), and Jeremiah Zagar (We the Animals), alongside producers Amy Lo (Mental Pictures) and Jean-Louis Livi (Ava), will discuss strategies and challenges in producing and directing a successful debut film. Presented in partnership with French in Motion & IFP.
