Film Fest calls for movies for ‘Film in Development’ award
The T&T Film Festival is making a call for submissions for its Film in Development award. The award is a place in the Rotterdam Lab for producers at the prestigious International Film Festival Rotterdam in January 2015.
The Rotterdam Lab—of which the T&T Film Festival is a nominating partner—is designed to provide emerging film producers with assistance in getting their film projects completed and brought to audiences around the world. The lab includes panel discussions organised on different topics, like development, production, sales, financing, distribution, promotion and television.
In these panels, experts from the international film industry provide producers tools on how to present their projects and how to build up a useful international network.
In addition to the organised lab programme, selected producers are encouraged to take advantage of their time in Rotterdam as much as possible by strengthening their network and participating in other events, like networking lunches, cocktails and other panels.
To be eligible for the Film in Development award, you must be a citizen or permanent resident of a Caribbean country producing a film in the region. You must provide:
• A producer’s statement
• A treatment between five and ten pages long
• An estimated budget
• A list of key crew members (if any are committed)
In addition to a place on the lab, the chosen producer will be provided with five nights’ accommodation in Rotterdam as well as a festival pass and invitations to networking events. Please note the lab is conducted in English and airfare and per diem are the responsibility of the producer.
Send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: Film in Development Award) no later than September 1. Shortlisted candidates will be notified by September 14 and the awardee will be announced at the ttff/13 awards ceremony on September 28. The award is sponsored by bpTT.
