Shoot the Book! Los Angeles 2019

Shoot the Book! Los Angeles will take place for the fifth time from November 18-20, 2019 in Los Angeles during the 2019 AFI Festival presented by Audi. This year, the presentations will focus on crime and thriller 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 Shoot the Book! Los Angeles will present at the 33rd edition of the AFI Festival. The festival is the American Film Institute’s annual celebration of international cinema from modern masters and emerging filmmakers.

This program is presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, in partnership with Institut français, SCELF, BIEF, and CFC.
