The first of three breakfasts hosted by East Silver Market focused on the French documentary industry with special guest Catherine Le Clef. As the former head Doc & Co and the current Senior Vice President TV and Ancillary Sales at Fortissimo Films, Catherine has started a new company, CAT&Docs which is dedicated to the promotion and sales of world class documentaries.
The very talented young producer, Cécile Lestrade of Alter Ego Production also attended, along with Benoit Gryspreerdt of French Cuisine Production, producer Marie Clemence Paes of Laterit Productions and Gabriel Chabanier of Galatica Group, a new collective ‘adventure' that compromises ten existing companies who have banded together to produce topic-specific films. All guests shared their international sales expertise and offer advice and opportunities to the East European documentary industry about co-productions, funds and broadcasters in France.
