10 YEARS OF ATELIER NETWORK & ARTE COOPERATION
The ATELIER NETWORK will be celebrating its 10th anniversary at the 2015 Festival de Cannes. Over the past decade, the film industry network has developed into a unique European-wide association, with representatives in the most important sectors of the film industry all over the world. Its members include producers, license dealers, lawyers, directors and screenwriters. They work for grant foundations, broadcasters, and other film industry organizations, often far beyond Europe.
The members of the network are alumni of the Atelier Ludwigsburg-Paris program, and are among the best-qualified young talents on the European continent. ARTE has supported the Atelier Ludwigsburg-Paris program since its inception, a success that both sides are very proud of.
Prof. Dr. Andreas Schreitmüller, head of the film and TV department at ARTE GEIE, on the Atelier: “Without international cooperation, Europe is too fragmented to compete on the global media market. That conviction has led ARTE to support the Atelier since its foundation. We believe in the imagination of its alumni and the potential of their network: it is unique, creative, and international!”
