TorinoFilmLab Meeting Event 2019

The TFL Meeting Event is the annual showcase of the projects, talents and films developed at TorinoFilmLab, featuring a global co-production forum for independent original or adapted feature films (with a focus on emerging directors), a presentation of the professionals trained within the scheme. It is also a moment to reward the best projects with awards & production grants, the TFL Production and TFL Co-Production Awards, as well as collateral prizes

Keynote Opening Event entitled “We Need to Talk About…” will inaugurate the co-production forum. Aiming at questioning existing practices in the film industry, this new element will be composed of a keynote session followed by an open discussion with key player of the industry. This first edition will focus on our responsibility, as individuals, companies and organisations, to take concrete action through our working practices. More information here.

The event will be completed with a focus on distribution: a special presentation of upcoming TFL Films to a selected audience of film distributors and festival representatives during the TFL Coming Soon work-in-progress showcase and a Case Study on Audience Design, presenting some insight on the distribution of TEL AVIV ON FIRE by Sameh Zoabi.
