Les Arcs Talent Village

Les Arcs has confirmed eight emerging directors for its Talent Village, who will participate in a three-day workshop at the event, with Israeli director Nadav Lapid acting as ambassador for the programme this year. One of the eight directors will be awarded a €1,000 prize, chosen by a jury consisting of Venice Production Bridge and Biennale College programmer Savina Neirotti, Cannes Critics’ Week general coordinator Thomas Rosso, and Laure Caillol, distributor at Haut et Court.

The Industry Village at Les Arcs attracted over 550 participants yearly prior to the pandemic; a similar number are expected to attend this year. The 2021 festival has a focus on Switzerland and the Alpine regions of France and Italy, as the first of two festivals focusing on the Alps as a whole.

Les Arcs will run from December 11-18, with the Industry Village running from December 11-14.
