In order to remember what exactly L’Atelier is, according to the official site:

Each year, L’Atelier selects about fifteen feature length projects from around the world, and invites their directors to the Festival de Cannes in order to put them in contact with film professionals. The filmmakers are selected according to the quality of their project and that of their previous films, as well as on the state of progress of their finance plan. The program will enable them to gain access to international financing and speed up the production process.

From May 17 to 23, L’Atelier will arrange meetings with the directors for film industry professionals interested in investing in their projects.
