TorinoFilmLab - Training, development, Funding


Production support

During the TorinoFilmLab Meeting Eventprojects developed within different TorinoFilmLab training programmes are presented to an audience of Decision Makers invited from all over the world.


On this occasion, an international Jury assigns Production Awards to a number of 1st and 2nd feature films developed within FeatureLab (in order to be eligible for these awards, all projects need to participate in the programme first). The awards are given to enable the making of the film, without any obligation to spend the money in Italy. The Jury changes every year, and it is formed by 5 members of the film industry.


The selection of the awarded projects is based on the following materials: script, budget, financing plan, production schedule, as well as on the public pitching of the project, and the individual meeting of the writer/director and producer with the Jury.
