At the TFL Meeting Event, TorinoFilmLab’s partners award a variety of collateral prizes backing the further development, production or post-production of projects coming from the current programmes ScriptLab and FeatureLab. Plus, this year the Post-Production Award will be offered to a former TFL project in a very advanced development stage. Down below is an overview of the prizes. They are assigned to some ScriptLab and FeatureLab projects during the annual TFL Meeting Event in November.

Following the project pitches and individual meetings, a decision regarding the award will be made by an ARRI representative. The ARRI Award will be announced during the awards ceremony.
