« French Innovation Week @ Chicago » 22 – 27th of April 2016
Last September, we worked to prepare our programs « 3D for Kids » and « Best of French 3D », write the paper programs, prepare the DCP’s etc…

Monday at 9 AM we were brought to the enormous Cinespace studios where a masterclass of students from the Depaul University waited for our first conference at 10 AM.
Then at 2 PM we did a second conference at Columbia College as always for the masters degree students of cinema.
And finally at 6 PM, we did a third conference in front of over fifty professionals from Fort Knox Studio, a place that brings together postproduction studios of image and sound, and a cultivation of start ups.
Tuesday morning we did the last conference at 10 AM at the Columbia College in front of the doctors degree participants.
We had very positive feedback and the council congratulated and thanked us several times for the interest we had suscited in the American professionals.
