International Market for Literary Adaptation
In partnership with the Institut français, the Cannes Film Market, the BIEF, and Film Paris Région, the SCELF is organizing the eighth edition of Shoot the Book!, which will take place during the Festival de Cannes 2021. Created in 2014, Shoot the Book! was born from conversations with individuals in the audiovisual industry who wanted a market specifically designed for adaptation at the Festival de Cannes. At this yearly event, publishers present a selection of books with strong adaptation potential to film and TV producers from France and across the globe. Over the course of the years, this event has generated a considerable network, bringing together literary and cinematographic players from different continents.
