WHAT IS PROJECT LAB
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 are selected for the Lab.
