TorinoFilmLab Meeting Event 2020 – DIGITAL EDITION

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 through FeatureLab), and a presentation of the professionals trained within the scheme. It is also a moment to reward the best projects with the TFL Production Awards, as well as collateral prizes backing the further development, production and post-production. 

The 2020 edition of the TFL Meeting Event will take place digitally.

A record number of 54 projects in development will be presented exclusively to the audience of decision makers. The selection will showcase feature film projects at an early stage developed within the screenwriting programme ScriptLab and first and second features at an advanced stage – both fiction and creative documentaries – accompanied within FeatureLab; and for the very first time the 12 original TV series projects from SeriesLab & SeriesLab – Italia. Furthermore, the TFL Meeting Event will be enriched with the pitching sessions of Red Sea Lodge, the Red Sea International Film Festival’s training programme dedicated to feature films from the Arab world, organised in collaboration with TFL. A selection of works-in-progress will complete the line-up within TFL Coming Soon, while Italian producers will benefit from a special guidance within the frame of the initiative TFL Up & Coming – Italia.

More information on the programme will be announced closer to the event.
