ShootTheBook! Los Angeles Online 2021

ShootTheBook! Los Angeles 2021

The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, the Société civile des éditeurs de langue française, the Bureau international de l’édition française, and the Institut français have the pleasure of announcing the 7th edition of Shoot the Book ! Los Angeles, an experience aiming to reinforce ties between French editors and one of the biggest international audiovisual markets, with this latest edition taking place online from May 17 – 20.

 

This original event, organized by the Office for Cultural Affairs and the Creative Industries in the Consulate General of France in Los Angeles, the IF, the BIEF, and the SCELF, allows agents and rights managers from French publishing houses to meet American professionals from the audiovisual industry interested in obtaining adaptation rights, all through an online market: ShootTheBook BSquare.

Showcasing a catalog of ten titles selected by an all-star jury of US adaptation professionals, Shoot the Book ! Los Angeles opens doors for French publishers pitching their books with high screen adaptation potential to the US market. Taking place over four days, the first two days are dedicated to keynotes and masterclasses to demystify US screen adaptation. During the final two days, the publishers will get the exclusive chance to meet one-on-one with professionals in the US to present their selected titles ready to make the leap to screen.

Thanks to the online format, the publishers will share video pitches of their selected titles and meet US professionals on both coasts.

 


HOW WE SELECTED THE BOOKS

The presented titles were selected by a jury of US film professionals composed of Michelle Kroes (CAA), Megan Halpern (The Black List), Steven Gaydos (Variety), screenwriter and producer Katherine Fugate, and Jasmine Jaisinghani (Global CINEMATHEQUE). This year, Jacqueline Lyanga, director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at IMDb.com, has accepted to be patron of the event.

 

The jury retained ten titles, each of which reflect this year’s theme, “Embrace the difference,” celebrating inclusion and diversity:
