Basic Lead, the organizers of the DISCOP television markets, and The Media Facutly, a Paris-based training consultancy, are launching a new event, The Remakes Market, to premiere from 29 November to 1 December at the Andwaz Hotel in West Hollywood.
To be held twice a year in Los Angeles, The Remakes Market, a biannual, compact, informal gathering, will showcase foreign adaptation rights for film, television and literary properties that have already achieved high levels of popularities in their countries of origin.
This inaugural edition will place a special emphasis on francophone movies, books, TV series and formats that can be adapted by US film and television producers, for domestic and international distribution.
A special homage will be paid to Alain Berheim (1923-2009), one of the great talent agents of Hollywood who came to California from France to represent famous French authors such as Francoise Sagan, Jean-Paul Sartre and Pierre Boulle.
