Among the script developped at the Workshops


The participants and instructors of the 2020 Workshops session

From 2022, the Workshops will change period and will take place during the Premiers Plans Festival, from January 23 to 30.

Founded by Jeanne Moreau, the Angers Workshops, in conjunction with Premiers Plans Festival, were launched in July 2005. These Workshops have been created for young French-speaking filmmakers with one or several short films to their credit, who have a first feature fiction film project in development.

The filmmakers will have the opportunity to develop their artistic projects during 7 days of hands-on classes concentrating on the artistic, technical and financial aspects of making a first film. The Workshops will focus on script, directorial skills, filming, editing, production... according to instructors profile and specificity...
