About FeatureLab
FeatureLab focuses on artistic & creative aspects as well as on production & promotion strategies in the development of 1st and 2nd feature films. It is aimed at teams of director and producer (together with a scriptwriter, if on board), working on projects that are already at an advanced stage. The programme takes place over a period of 6 months.

10 projects are selected to benefit from individually tailored tools. Participants first gather for a 2-day presentation and exchange-meeting, which includes the screening of their previous works and the first group sessions. The following days are dedicated to individual encounters with various trainers, who are internationally experienced in the main areas of filmmaking: alongside having script consultations, the participants work with experts from the fields of directing, cinematography, sound, post-production, but also of production, financing & sales, and audience engagement.
Some of the trainers will be selected according to the particular needs of the projects, following a tailor made Lab proposal for the two workshops. The diversity of approaches and the enriching experience that comes as a result of the exchange with other colleagues will help the teams to boost the project development process throughout their participation in the programme.

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 Decision Makers, and are granted visibility thanks to the TFL Catalogue and network.  Moreover, the projects are assessed by an international Jury awarding production and co-production grants, and compete for a variety of collateral awards.
