Training and Mentoring are provided by international professionals – producers, screenwriters, directors, distributors, sales agents, broadcasters, lawyers – including experts and consultants familiar with Produire au Sud and FIDADOC.

Thanks to the support of Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC), Cinema Centers of Tunisia (CNCI) and Morocco (CCM), the participants of our second edition benefited of a regular and personalized support from our script and production consultants, through Skype meetings and a second session of the workshop organized in Tunis during Carthage Cinema Days.

For its third edition in 2019, Produire au Sud Agadir wishes to assert its multiple identity – African, Arab and Mediterranean – by contributing to a regional dynamic symbolized by the creation of the Arab Film Institutes Commission (AFIC) which brings together the cinema centers (or structures fulfilling equivalent missions) of 7 countries: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Lebanon, Palestine, Egypt and Jordan.

A cooperation tool essential for the development of true South/South co-productions at the regional level, which is in line with FIDADOC’s ambition to establish itself as a platform for exchanges and co-productions at the crossroads of Africa, Arab world and Euro-Mediterranean area.
