Lab on Mars Pro

In addition to its natural function as a distributor of cinematographic works, the Festival offers a working ground between partners in the industry and creators such as directors, scriptwriters and composers.One of the Festival's fundamental missions is to support creation and training for young artists. To this end, it develops mechanisms to help the professionalization of authors by contributing to their identification and the development of a concrete project.


À l'initiative de Meditalents et à l'occasion des 25 ans du MCM, les deux structures s'associent pour créer Co/Lab, un espace de rencontres consacré aux longs métrages méditerranéens  développés dans les ateliers d’écriture de Méditalent : LabMed et Labdoc.
ALCIME, the association that organizes the international festival Music & Cinema Marseille, and the SACEM, offer a grant for the composition of an original score for short films. To be eligible for this grant, these short films must be shot, produced or post-produced in Provence-Alps-Côte d’Azur, the Rhône Alps or Auvergne.  

La résidence du sud

La Résidence du Sud aims to accompany authors in their francophone scenario projects.

Registration Kiosque

This year again, the MCM renews the unique feature of the Espace Kiosque. The Espace Kiosque is one of the Festival's flagship events for supporting young filmmakers and encouraging professional encounters. During one day, the Espace Kiosque offers talented screenwriters the opportunity to discuss their projects with producers.
With the support of Sacem, the MCM organizes a Master Class of Musical composition for Cinema every year. Directed by experienced and talented composers, this Master Class allow up to ten young composers and musicians to benefit from a 10-day intensive workshop to revisit the original music of several short films or films extracts. The aim is to work toward a finished work for MCM’s closing ceremony, and perform a public representation of this movie-concert, interpreted by the students.
