TFL 360° 2019-2021 consists of 3 activities:
1) ScriptLab – for scriptwriters and directors working on the writing of a feature film at an early stage of development; as well as for film professionals interested in being trained as story editors.

ScriptLab trains scriptwriters and directors developing a script for a feature film, as well as story editors. It ventures into exploring different ways in which an audiovisual project can be born: a script based on an original story or an adaptation based on a pre-existing work.

2) FeatureLab – for creative teams of writer, director and producer with a feature film project at an advanced stage, covering the main areas of filmmaking: script, directing, cinematography, sound, post-production, financing & sales and audience engagement.

FeatureLab is aimed at creative teams of scriptwriter, director and producer from all over the world interested in a comprehensive approach for developing their 1st or 2nd feature film projects at an advanced stage; as well as at audiovisual professionals interested in gaining hands-on experience in the creation of audience engagement strategies for international film projects in development or pre-production stage.

Through a period of 6 months, from the first residential workshop to the TFL Meeting Event, the teams focus on both artistic and creative aspects as well as on production & promotion strategies of their projects. Audiovisual professionals interested in gaining hands-on experience in the creation of audience engagement strategies for international film projects in development or pre-production stage will find in the FeatureLab programme a precious tool to hone their skills.

3) SeriesLab – for European scriptwriters, directors and producers working on original TV series projects.
