Feature Launch 2023: open call for projects!

Feature Launch is ready for its projects for the 2023 edition! And this year, we are introducing a multi-stage project selection process in order to be able to support more emerging talents! 

September 07, 2022

From the applications, we will select approx. 20 projects, of which their creative teams will receive a detailed online assessment from two experienced professionals (script consultants and producers).

Based on this assessment, 
9 projects will be selected for Feature Launch 2023 program. The Feature Launch program consists of 2 residential and 2 online workshops, a project showcase and optional follow-up session for producers

The 9 selected feature film projects go through an intensive 4-module program that enables them to work closely on the script and project development, and provides them with financing, networking and co-production opportunities. Within the course of the program, the participants get the chance to create/discuss financing, pitching, marketing or distribution strategies. Producers also acquire company development training.
