Shoot the Book! Los Angeles

Shoot the Book! Los Angeles will take place for the fourth time on November 9, 2018 in Los Angeles during the 2018 AFI Festival presented by Audi. This year’s edition will focus on young adult IPs. Shoot the Book! Los Angeles is a unique opportunity for French publishers to present books with strong potential for screen adaptation to the Hollywood film and TV industry.

Shoot the Book! consists of a pitching session during which invited French rights directors present books chosen for their potential as screen adaptations for film, television, and other digital formats to an audience of film professionals. The French fellows will also be conducting individual meetings as well as visiting production companies and talent agencies during their stay. 

This year, for the first time, Shoot the Book! Los Angeles will present at the AFI Festival's 32nd edition. The festival is the American Film Institute's annual celebration of international cinema from modern masters and emerging filmmakers. 

The publishing houses’ representatives will also pitch a second title. Movie rights to these books are available.
