MIDPOINT Institute is proud to introduce eight talented filmmakers selected for the new edition of MIDPOINT Shorts, a special program dedicated to script and project development of short films.

In September, the program will take off with a preparatory three-day online workshop,during which the participants will obtain the first feedback on the projects, meet their colleagues and tutors and get the first assignment. 

The second 5-day workshop will be organized also on an online platform in October and the final workshop will bring participants in January 2021 to Trieste to present their projects within When East Meets West Co-production Forum and further network with film industry experts.
