Berlinale selects THE HEIRESSES and TOUCH ME NOT for its Competition!

January 15, 2018

We are excited to announce the presence of 2 TFL films – the only feature debuts – among the 10 titles joining the festival’s main Competition!

TorinoFilmLab has accompanied these 2 projects throughout their whole journey, in accordance with its motto: “training, development & funding”.

THE HEIRESSES by Marcelo Martinessi (Paraguay / Germany / Uruguay / Norway / Brazil / France) participated in Script&Pitch 2014 and FrameWork the following year, winning a Production Award at the Meeting Event 2015.

TOUCH ME NOT by Adina Pintilie (Romania / Germany / Czech Republic / Bulgaria / France) was developed in Script&Pitch 2007 and FrameWork 2011, receiving a Production Award as well. In 2017, the project – by that time in editing stage – crossed the path of TFL again by participating to the activities organized in the frame of the TFL Alumni Meeting.

Last but not least, both films have been showcased within our work-in-progress event, TFL Coming Soon, which was held in November 2017.

Congratulations to the amazing people who worked on these projects!
