In 2017, Ateliers Varan and the Alliance Française in Bangui organised the first filmmaking workshop to be held in the Central African Republic. The selection of candidates took place in two stages: firstly, out of 130 written applications, about forty candidates were selected for interviews. Of these, ten participants were finally selected to take part in the workshop which lasted 7 weeks - from 31st October to 16th December 2017. For this first workshop, held in a country scarred by civil war, the participants made films on the subject of re-building the country.
This Workshop was organised in collaboration with the Central African Republic, the French Embassy, the European Union « Békou Fund », the UN Development Fund, the World Bank, the Agence Française de Développement (French Development Agency), the City of Paris and the French Institute.
