Congratulations to the 2018 Cannes Producer’s Network Fellows

by April Bethea on April 19, 2018

IFP is the sole U.S. Partner Organization for the Cannes Producer’s Network, annually selecting and sponsoring attendance for up to seven independent producers to participate in the Producer’s Network & Industry Workshop’s prestigious week-long immersion programs.

Selected from an incredibly strong pool of applicants, which includes both narrative and documentary producers, this year’s attending fellows are: Deanna Barillari (The Sky is a Gap), Danielle Renfrew Behrens (Columbus), Zoe Sua Cho (They), Jennifer MacArthur (Whose Streets?), Rachel Nederveld (Clara’s Ghost), Krista Parris (Madeline’s Madeline), Jamila Wignot (A Stray).

Running concurrently with Cannes Film Festival, the 2018 Cannes Producer’s Network will be held May 9 – 16, and is specifically designed for established producers to build up their international networks and share expertise on the international production, financing, legal and packaging. The Cannes Industry Workshop, for emerging producers, will be held May 19 – 11, and provides additional opportunities to producers to understand how to navigate Cannes and its international marketplace.
