Feature Launch 2021 participants start their second workshop today

June 28, 2021

Talented filmmakers of 9 selected feature film projects and 3 script consultant trainees e-meet again this week to continue their MIDPOINT journey.

After the kickoff session followed by the first workshop held online this April, the participants with projects will now proceed to work on their scripts with three group leaders: Anne Gensior, Pavel Jech and Ivo Trajkov. Script Consultant Trainees will again join them thorough the whole process, being mentored by Gyula Gazdag while head of studies / producer tutor Danijel Hocevar will oversee the whole process.

This workshop will also welcome several guest tutors: Christina Pelekani will address film marketing basics within her lecture Marketing Is Your Friend: An Introduction to Film Marketing, while Marcin Luczaj will share his tips on the Dos And Don'ts With Sales Agents. Pitching tutor Gabriele Brunnenmeyer will explain the participants How to Pitch Your Film - 6 Questions for the Pitch, preparing them for the Works in Development – Feature Launch Project Showcase held on July 28 within Eastern Promises Industry Days of Karlovy Vary IFF (more info coming soon).

We are also thrilled to announce a special event held in partnership with EAVE: Transforming Companies – An Interview with Ada Solomon, hosted by Linda Beath.
