  • Petar Mitric
Part of the Palgrave European Film and Media Studies book series (PEFMS)


Isabelle Fauvel , the founder of the Paris-based company Initiative Film, has been consulting scriptwriters, directors and producers for 25 years, from the earliest stages of their film projects. Thanks to the vast network of international contacts that she has built while being associated with different film festivals and international script and project development labs, she is in a position to connect film professionals from different countries already during the development phase—a phase that is mostly overlooked by the co-production policies. We discussed with Isabelle Fauvel benefits and challenges of international development and how it can lead to more co-productions.
