The Marché heads into this year’s market with a new executive director in Guillaume Esmiol, who co-directed the 2022 edition alongside longtime leader Jerome Paillard and is taking on his solo duties for the first time at this year’s May market.
It is part of a fresh approach Esmiol plans to bring to the Marché du Film in 2023 and in the years to come: “The Marché needs to position itself as not only a place to buy and sell films, but also as a hub of film financing, take into account the increasing importance of streamers for the industry, and put more focus on IP and intellectual property. In a few years, I hope the Marché isn’t just seen as a market for finished films, but as a market for every aspect of the industry.”
