New “TFL Up & Coming” initiative for emerging producers kicks off at TFL Meeting Event 2017!

November 16, 2017

This year’s edition of the TFL Meeting Event, marking the 10th anniversary of the creation of TorinoFilmLab, will be enriched by the launch of a new initiative: TFL Up & Coming. The aim of this action is to support emerging, non-European producers attending the TFL Meeting Event by offering them a special “welcome package” and enhanced visibility.

These enterprising international producers, selected in collaboration with a range of partner organizations that closely collaborate with TFL, will receive a dedicated guidance to the co-production forum and will be facilitated to navigate the fast-paced working context of the event. Furthermore they will benefit from a special, tailor-made plan of activities, aimed at connecting them with potential partners, widening their industry network and, at the same time, empowering their knowledge and experience of European co-productions, markets and funding.

TorinoFilmLab created for them a specific programme of master classes and case studies, on subjects such as script development strategies for producers, funding and tax incentives, co-production in Europe and European sales. Highly qualified European professionals that regularly collaborate in TFL’s training programmes, including among others Antoine Le Bos, Ewa Puszczyńska and Ada Solomon, will present all these topics.

After their dedicated training sessions, the TFL Up & Coming producers will join the other guests in the TFL Meeting Event programme.

The 12 participants hail from 11 non-European countries: Angola, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Chile, Colombia, Lebanon, Mexico, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, USA. The partner organizations include Biennale College – Cinema, BrLab, the Doha Film Institute, Morelia Sundance Lab, Cannes Critics’ Week’s Next Step, Locarno Festival’s Open Doors, REALNESS and SEAFIC. Moreover, 2 local producers from Piemonte will join the programme thanks to a special partnership with Film Commission Torino Piemonte.

We invite you to discover the profiles of the TFL Up & Coming producers in the TFL Catalogue 2017, now available on-line.
