EIFF Talent Lab provides emerging talent with a fantastic opportunity to learn from the world’s key film industry players over a four day residential during Edinburgh International Film Festival. Selected filmmakers will take part in meetings, discussions and networking opportunities to help develop their projects, their careers, and themselves.

At the centre of the EIFF Talent Lab is 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.

EIFF invites Scottish, UK and international directors, producers and screenwriters to apply for this unmissable chance to discuss their projects and ideas with a selection of invited industry professionals including sales agents, executive producers, literary agents, story editors and financiers.

EIFF Talent Lab 2022 will take place from Wednesday 17 to Saturday 20 August (inclusive).
