An initiative to support emerging talents

This program, which was introduced to the Poitiers Film Festival in 2016, aims at supporting emerging directors as they build their professional network and develop future projects. Several directors from the International Selection are invited to join workshops hosted by production, script-writing, direction and festival professionals.

The Jump In program is divided into seven workshop units that can be group or individual sessions. In addition to networking, these meetings allow young directors and senior professionals to share experiences and expertise.
