About

A unique professional project and skills development program intended for emerging film professionals with the focus on the region of the Central and Eastern Europe.

Every year it selects teams of writers, producers and first- or second-time directors of 9 feature film projects and 3 script consultant trainees who join the creative process.

The best project of the program receives the KVIFF & MIDPOINT Development Award of 10.000 EUR. See the Awards section for more information about other networking awards the program offers.

MIDPOINT Feature Launch is realized with the support of Creative Europe - MEDIA Programme of the European Union.
