Since 2016, MedFilm Festival has started the professional platform MEDMeetings aiming to offer a space for encounters between EuroMediterranean cinema professionals to encourage exchanges, collaborations and co-productions. For its 26th edition, MedFilm is happy to launch the MEDFilm Works in Progress workshop as part of MEDMeetings.
By launching a new section dedicated to works in progress organized in the frame of the professional platform MEDMeetings, MedFilm would like to open up a space for professional exchanges between Euro-Mediterranean countries.
This year 6 diverse and unique cinematic proposals, mostly documentaries, deeply anchored in reality with an overwhelming poetic approach coming from Italy, Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia will be presented to an international jury that will offer their expertise.
On the 9th and 10th November, the meetings between the jury members and each duet director/producer will be held online. At the end of the workshop, the jury will award a grant of 8.000 EUR and a post-production prize (production of a DCP and English subtitles) to the most promising films.
MedFilm thanks Lazio Innova – Lazio Region, General Directorate for Cinema – MiBACT, IOM (International Organization for Migration), db Studios and Stadion Video for their collaboration.
