WHAT IS PROJECT LAB
After the success of previous years, Bridging the Dragon will hold the new edition of its yearly Project Lab. The event is an immersive workshop and inspiring think-tank for projects suitable for collaboration between Europe and China.
It will consist of two modules of 3-4 days each. The first one will be held in China (e.g. previously Shanghai, Beijing or Nanjing) and the second with the same projects will be held a few months later in the context of a major European film event (e.g. previously Berlin, Locarno or Venice). 8 European and 8 Chinese projects with a clear perspective of Sino-European collaboration will be selected.
Participants from Europe and China will be coached by respected writers and production experts of the other side, in order to help overcome cultural differences as well as improving project feasibility and story telling.
In the last few years the Project Lab has been proven to be not only a breeding ground for valuable contents but it also fostered a number of collaborations among the participants spanning from acquisition, co-financing to long term partnerships.
