FeatureLab

FeatureLab

Dedicated to 1st and 2nd feature films at advanced development stage, FeatureLab focuses on artistic and creative aspects, as well as production and promotion strategies.

WHAT IS FEATURELAB?

FeatureLab is a training programme dedicated to 1st and 2nd feature film projects - fiction, creative documentaries, experimental, animation or any possible kind of cinema form - at an advanced stage of development. It is aimed at teams of director and producer (with a scriptwriter, if on board) and it unfolds throughout three workshops taking place over a period of 6 months. Every year 10 projects are selected to benefit from the programme.

THE PROGRAMME

Each film team will have several individual encounters with various trainers internationally experienced in the different key areas of filmmaking. Alongside having script consultations, the participants work with experts from the fields of directing, cinematography, sound, editing, but also of production, financing & sales, sustainability and audience engagement. Some of the trainers will be selected according to the particular needs of the projects, following a tailor-made proposal. In parallel to the individual sessions, group sessions with the other participants will nurture the unique experience of sharing the development stage with other filmmakers and producers. The enriching environment that comes as a result of the exchange with other colleagues will help the teams to boost the project development process.

A final presentation of the projects during the TFL Meeting Event in November concludes and completes the training and development process: all participants present their projects publicly to an audience of international producers, sales agents and other film industry professionals, have one-to-one meetings with market guests and are granted visibility thanks to the TFL Catalogue and network of promotion. 

Moreover, the projects are assessed by an international and prestigious Jury awarding production grants and compete for a variety of collateral awards (for further details see the pages dedicated to FundingProduction Awards and  Collateral prizes).
