Workshop 1

The purpose of this workshop is for filmmakers: to find the core of each project, both thematically and narratively. It is a search for the power driving each story as well as revealing the subconscious interrogation lying at its heart.

Workshop 2
Combining feedback from professionals and following the path of the first rewrites in between the first two workshops, the goal is to establish a bone structure for the script while integrating the creative trigger of budget limitations.

LIM Showcase Event
Normally right after the second workshop but in 2020 not until September, a showcase event is held in Brittany to present the projects to producers, coproducers, sales agents, funds, etc. Filmmakers benefit from the input of industry professionals from all over Europe during a tailor-made Showcase Event. High profile producers, sales agents, or distributors give intensive feedbacks  every project to give an understanding of how the stories / films will be perceived by the Industry. The goal is also to start potential collaborations.
Workshop 3
With a broader coalition of combined groups and consultants, the projects enter the final stage of development. The purpose is to finalise a strong treatment or a first draft if possible. This is about raising the right questions and finding the right answers, finding doors and windows, connecting the need for limitations to enhance a powerful story.
