Seeking nominees for Rotterdam Lab 2012!
EIFF launches an exciting opportunity for emerging producers…
Are you an emerging Scottish or Scottish based producer? Ready to produce your first or second feature film? Then perhaps we have the opportunity you have been looking for.
Edinburgh International Film Festival, as part of the Centre for the Moving Image and in partnership with the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), is proud to offer three Scottish or Scottish based producers the chance to attend the 2012 Rotterdam Lab, organised as part of CineMart at IFFR.
The Rotterdam Lab takes place each year alongside the IFFR and offers 60 emerging producers from various countries the chance to take part in group sessions with key members of the industry. Participants learn about a variety of topics including distribution, financing and international feature film sales. There are also plenty of opportunities to soak up the CineMart marketplace and attend organised networking events.
As part of Creative Scotland’s Creative Futures programme, EIFF are delighted to be able to send three Scottish producers to the 2012 Rotterdam Lab. This exciting opportunity includes flights, accommodation and a full festival pass. Applicants will be expected to have a producer credit on either a short, feature film or documentary that has performed well at film festivals.
The Rotterdam Lab 2012 will take place between 28 January and 2 February 2012. To apply to be a nominee with EIFF please visit the Rotterdam Lab page of our website and complete the EIFF Rotterdam Lab Nominee Application Form. There you will also find full details on the Rotterdam Lab and guidelines for the application. Please make sure you read these clearly before applying.
Applications close at 12 noon on Monday 21 November.
