Three Guadeloupean creators will benefit from an incubation program during the tenth edition of the FilmGate Interactive Media Festival (FGI X).
Ella Jacoby, Lucas Sousseing and Jeff Fidelin, three French creators from Guadeloupe, will embark to Miami for a week learning expedition with key industry players during FGI X.
They will benefit from the New Narratives Lab, a program of masterclasses, individual workshops, prototyping and mentoring at University of Miami, created by FilmGate Miami and coached by René Pinnel, CEO and founder of Artizen, a community fund for art, science, technology, and design. FilmGate Miami and Artizen have created a joint fund of $10,000 that will go towards the projects.
The Institut français is responsible for France’s international cultural program. Supervised by both the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and by the Ministry of Culture, it promotes French culture abroad through cultural exchange initiatives. Operating in a space where the arts, intellectual exchange, cultural and social innovation, and linguistic partnerships interact and intersect, it is also responsible for promoting the French language and the sharing of works, artists, and ideas all over the world. The Institut français is one of Villa Albertine’s main French partners.
