Selection of our successful alumni
Dark and haunting psychological drama about the collision of modern day faith healers and post-war trauma of survivors in Kosovo.
Lost in Paradise
Eugene could have gone down the safe path, studied dentistry in Bern, and taken over his father's practice. Instead, he decided to explore his native country, fulfil his dream, and go to Prague to open a music club. But man proposes and God disposes - Eugene suddenly finds himself back on the road to Switzerland, while in his head, he recapitulates the mistakes he made. A tragi-comic mosaic about remorse, the differing values of two cultures, and the hope for reconciliation.

You may ask...
So, I can apply for Editing Room Feedback anytime?
Yes, we have now an ongoing call, you can apply anytime and you will receive the 3-hour-long online consultation.
Can I apply to Editing Room Workshop without having participated in Editing Room Feedback?
The original idea is to do both stages in succession, but since the post-production process can vary due to external circumstances, just reach out and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
I'm a director and I'm editing by myself. Can I apply?
The program is designed for a team of one editor and one director. However, for Editing Room Workshop, we might be able to match you with an editor from our pool of collaborators.
