TFL Next - Feature Film 2024

Call for applications open! Deadline: 08/03/2024

Treatment-based online workshop divided into 2 development sessions.


The workshop is treatment-based, which means that participants exclusively work on the treatment of their feature film projects.

The workshop is divided into 2 development sessions:

  • - a first 5 day-long session, where participants discuss their work in group sessions and one-on-one meetings with their tutors
  • - then, participants have 3 weeks to rework their materials
  • - a second 2 day-long session, where participants share and discuss their work again in individual meetings with their mentors and group sessions with other participants


20 feature film projects at an early development stage presented by international scriptwriters or writers/directors together with a producer (if on board) will be selected and divided into 5 groups.

The participants will work on their treatments alongside peers and a tutor with substantial international experience as a script consultant, implementing the fundamental techniques and skills necessary to develop and produce successful feature films.


The online workshops are open to scriptwriters, directors and producers from all over the world. The project can be presented individually or in a team (maximum 2 participants per team) and must be in the shape of a feature film project at an early development stage.

The working language of all workshops, meetings and events is English; thus, a good knowledge of English is essential to participate.


1,700 Euro (+ VAT, if due) per team of participants (max 2 participants).

Upon selection, participants must send proof of the payment within the following 2 days, to confirm their seat.

TorinoFilmLab doesn’t foresee any scholarships for this workshop.

In many countries, public institutions provide scholarships for this kind of training, and TorinoFilmLab can provide a selection letter to facilitate the request.
