The dir­ectors among you won’t want to miss this. The Talents team introduces the events likely to be of in­terest regarding the upcoming sum­mit. Whether it be through attending talks by established directors or sessions in which you get to adopt the perspective of an expert from another cinematic discipline, the aim is to make you even more curious than you already are. Any good director knows that moving a project forwards means getting the best out of their collaborators. Your task is clear.
