4TH SINO-EUROPEAN PROJECT LAB - CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Extended deadline Friday, 7 September 2018
WHAT IS PROJECT LAB
The 4th BtD Project Lab is now open for application! Project Lab is an immersive workshop and think-tank for projects suitable for Sino-European co-production. It has two modules of 3-4 days each. The first module is held in China (e.g. Shanghai in 2015, Beijing in 2016, Nanjing in 2017) and the second module with the same projects is held a few months later in Europe (e.g. Locarno in 2015, Venice in 2016, Berlin in 2018). Participants are coached by high-level writing and production tutors from China and Europe on story structure, believability of the setting in relation to the other co-producing part and feasibility of co-production. 6-8 European and 6-8 Chinese projects with a clear perspective of collaboration between China and Europe will be selected for the Lab. Among the projects, this year there will be additional opportunities for Dutch filmmakers who are focusing on book adaptations of youth and family films.
