Reports on Feature Launch & Shorts W1 2018

February 08, 2018

The first workshops of both programs are well over with, and we look back at the results from last week's intensive events in Trieste.

MIDPOINT Feature Launch 2018 – Workshop 1

The 9 participating projects took the first steps at the new and expanded Feature Launch program. The first workshop focused on the development of the script, as well as offering the participants training in pitching and financing strategies.

Barbora Struss, Director of MIDPOINT, says,

"Trieste proved to be the ideal frame for the first workshop offering both the intimacy for script development and the vibrant atmosphere for networking that is so important for filmmakers in the early stages of their careers. We are very satisfied with our partnership with Trieste Film Festival and When East Meets West, and are already counting down to the second workshop in Serbia, and the third, the Project Showcase that will unspool at Karlovy Vary IFF."

Check out all the projects to the left.
