Organized since 2014, the Shoot the Book! professional meetings aim to promote the film adaptation of French literature works of fiction.
Each year, books are selected by a jury of film and publishing professionals for their screen adaptation potential. The selected publishers are then invited to the Cannes Film Festival to meet the participating foreign producers (Pitch of the works and individual meetings).
The concept is also used at other professional events such as the Shanghai International Film Festival in June and the American Film Market in November in Los Angeles.
Shoot The Book! is organized on the initiative of the publishers united within the SCELF and the BIEF , in partnership with Film Paris Region and the French Institute.
