EIFF Talent Lab


EIFF Talent Lab gives up-and-coming filmmakers a fantastic opportunity to learn from the world’s key film industry players. Emerging Scottish, UK and international directors, producers and screenwriters are offered the unmissable chance to discuss the industry, their projects and their ideas with a selection of invited industry professionals including sales agents, executive producers, literary agents, story editors and distributors.

Drawing on the Festival’s successful track record in talent development, over four days the EIFF Talent Lab will lead 30 participants in group discussions, workshops and networking events as well as hosting an invaluable afternoon of 1-2-1 advice and information sessions with experienced industry insiders, all with the aim of honing skills and building confidence within a new generation of filmmakers.

The 2014 EIFF Talent Lab will run from Friday 20 to Monday 23 June. Participants will also receive a full festival Industry pass to allow them to immerse themselves in all the events and passholder screenings on offer.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 28 April 2014
