Serving young Mediterranean film talent since 2011
Our goal is to promote emerging talents from the Mediterranean basin by offering them professional expertise in all stages of film creation.
In the journey of young Mediterranean filmmakers, there are still too few platforms to support and accompany them. Mentors passionate about supporting creation, transmission and sharing of knowledge created MEDITALENTS in 2011.
MEDITALENTS brings together film professionals and recognized screenwriters with the aim of helping young talent to realize their vision and giving them the tools for creative autonomy. MEDITALENTS provides them with assistance in writing, directing, technical aspects, as well as recognition and exposure.
Let us participate in the birth of films, factors of peace, by their impact on the understanding of the other, both in the Mediterranean area and throughout the world.

The transmission of technical and artistic knowledge
Work and reflection in workshops
Creation of professional networks
To see the films of our talents produced, selected and awarded in the main festivals, and to find an audience in theaters, on television and on platforms.
To accompany each project with a sustained qualitative requirement.
Transform the first draft, give it meaning and structure to make it a constructed and accomplished scenario.
Bring the film project to fruition by giving it the necessary scope to meet a producer.
To give talents the opportunity to be spotted at an international level so that they can be produced and co-produced.
The script being the essential ingredient of a quality film, the filmmaker, in order to nourish his talents, will deepen with MEDITALENTS his own screenwriting to make it more impactful.
MEDITALENTS selects and brings together young and emerging filmmakers from all the shores of the Mediterranean (Mediterranean Europe, Maghreb, Mediterranean Middle East).
Coming from the three great traditions with a common history, they are the potential bearers of a cinematography marked by interculturality and values of otherness. They often have real difficulties in making the transition to feature films.
