What’s in Store for 2024?: Noémie Merlant, Leyla Bouzid & Marjane Satrapi Receive CNC Coin

A dozen 12 projects have been selected as part of the second 2023 session of the CNC’s advance on receipts committee and floating at the top of the list we find the next works for Leyla Bouzid, Marjane Satrapi and a sophomore feature for Noémie Merlant, who co-wrote with Céline Sciamma. Merlant’s Les femmes au balcon focuses on three women in a Marseille apartment during a heatwave. Facing them is their mysterious neighbour, the object of all their fantasies. But the women soon find themselves stuck in a terrifying and wild scenario, with freedom their only goal. Merlant cast herself alongside Souheila Yacoub and Sandra Codreanu. This will be produced by Nord-Ouest Films’ Pierre Guyard. The Cineuropa folks give a run down here. Here are the other projects in bullet form:
