Starting with a 7 days workshop in Paris and Pisa (Italy) from the 6th to the 12th of April, the programme will run until the end of December 2015. These 5 producers will automatically join the existing ACE Network of more than 180 producers from 40 countries.
For the first time US independent cinema will be represented in our network, with a producer based in New York. Our second Chinese member comes from Shanghai. She is the the former programming director of the Shanghai International Film Festival, and has produced several great Chinese independent films these last years, among them Black Coal Thin Ice, Golden Bear in Berlin 2014.
