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.

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.
