WHAT IS FEATURELAB?
FeatureLab is our comprehensive project development programme for 1st and 2nd fiction feature films.
From June to November 2017, participants will gather for 3 week-long residential workshops, where they will receive tailor-made consultations and work on their projects under the guidance of internationally experienced trainers, or get coached in the design of audience engagement strategies.
Open to professionals from all over the world, FeatureLab is made of 2 actions: 360 and audience design, running parallel along the year.
The areas of consultation for 360 include script, directing, cinematography, sound, post- production, co-productions, sales & distribution, etc. The selected projects will be presented in the TFL Meeting Event co-production forum
(November 2017) and are eligible to compete for the TFL Production & Co-Production Awards, as well as for several collateral prizes.
The audience design participants will work in group, meeting with the projects’ filmmakers and producers as well as with dedicated trainers, developing, researching, writing and presenting a
concrete strategy to later support a film’s sales and distribution.
