Searching for new narratives in fiction

Films and series hold immense sway over collective imagination.
Our objective is to accelerate the evolution of the audiovisual industry

FILM FOR CHANGE
PRO EVENT

 MARCH 26TH – 4:30PM

Searching for new narratives

An event bringing together the audiovisual sector – producers, distributors, authors, actors – and new narratives experts to promote more inclusive and environmental conscious narratives at the heart of mainstream fiction.

We will explore through conferences and inspiring project pitches how fiction can contribute to the construction of more sustainable collective imaginaries.

Pitch Session

The selection of the top 8 fiction projects embodying these new narratives will pitch to a jury of producers and distributors.

Not necessarily activists, these modern fictions, while retaining their appeal, inspire sustainable behaviours on screen and awaken public consciousness.

Conferences

Inspiring conferences to discuss the role fiction can play in the ecological transition. What are these new narratives? What imaginaries can cinema contribute building ?


We will also discuss various ways to integrate these new imaginaries into creation. How action, adventure, and romance films can carry these new narratives through clandestine messages, the importance of constructing narratives in desirable and viable futures versus futures of collapse…

Our goal is to use and nourish the amazing storytelling power of cinema for positive change.
