Initiative Film is at the root of bridges and connexions in between the book world and the film industry and guides directors and producers in their research for books to adapt.

Literature as an inspiration isn't a new phenomenon, but the number of films inspired by books is growing. In view of the large scope of choices, we often face this following questioning: How to find the book that will be the one that you wish to adapt ? Unless you fall in love by chance with a book, orchestrating an encounter between a book and a director or producer is a more reliable way of finding the appropriate source of inspiration. 


Initiative Film tackles this issue, either by specific research around identified desires revealed by the director or producer, either through a theme report, which gathers books around a specific prism.
