In the context of the 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival, the European Film Forum (EFF) will pay tribute to European talents to whom we owe the recognition of European films and TV works worldwide. It is also the right time to reflect on Europe's creative ecosystem which is undergoing profound changes through digitisation.

Poster of the conference

Quality audiovisual productions imply combining and leveraging individual talents in front of or behind the screen.

This open debate aims to identify the main challenges and opportunities for talents today in Europe with a view to foster a favourable business environment enabling European works and creativity to flourish and reach wider audiences internationally.  The discussions will highlight the needs and areas requiring change and reflect on best practices and possible recommendations for ways forward.

The debate will be split in several sessions: 

  • Introductory remarks by High Level Representative of the European Commission
  • Conversation with two renowned European film directors
  • Panel 1: "Fostering the rise of European talents"
  • Panel 2: "Equipping talents with an updated set of skills"
  • Concluding remarks
