📖 Shoot the Book! The speed meeting dedicated to literary adaptation

The Marché du Film is delighted to bring back the 3rd edition of Shoot the Book! to this year’s momentous Festival de Cannes.

This unmissable two-day event will bring together a total of 32 publishers (22 French publishers and 10 European agents/publisher) and match them with international producers seeking future projects.

This year’s 3rd edition is split into two parts:

  • Pitches: 8 July 2021
    The online Pitches session of Shoot the Book! will give publishers the opportunity to present 12 literary books chosen for their adaptation potential by a jury of industry professionals. Participate online from home OR from our dedicated Speed Meeting space at the Marché du Film in Cannes!
  • Rendez-Vous: 9 July 2021
    The B2B rendez-vous component of Shoot the Book! will consist of one-to-one meetings between international producers and publishers looking to adapt literary works for the big screen. Join us in the Press Conference Room of the Festival de Cannes.
