LIM offers a new generation of filmmakers, already acknowledged for their short films, first features, or achievements in visual arts or theater, the opportunity of designing their own route into limited budget feature film production.

In addition to actual script development, the scheme involves meeting potential producers or coproducers and financial partners.

LIM consists of 3 workshops in 3 different European countries between March and October 2019. Between these workshops, regular deadlines and online sessions ensure a process of regular exchange and follow up over the 9 months period.

16 film projects are selected each year from all over the world wanting to strengthen their ability to follow the development of feature film projects within a limited budget frame: LIM welcomes writers / directors with a first, second or third feature project, as well as artists coming from theatre, documentary and visual arts, who apply with a project at an early stage of development.
