As we approach the 10th anniversary of EIFF Talent Lab, we continue to offer opportunities of support and development for our past participants to help them and their projects move forward in whatever ways they need!

TALENT LAB CONNECTS is a new initiative for Talent Lab alumni which offers a fantastic opportunity to develop a feature film or serial television drama project, supported by industry professionals.

Teams will be supported to identify a series of specific goals for their projects at the beginning of the process, and guided towards achieving them throughout the programme. There will be bespoke support in the form of script and story feedback and advice for ways to access further support in the industry.

Participants will leave the programme with a strong, clear story outline; wherever possible a first draft screenplay; a pitch; and a clearer idea of where their project sits within the market.

If you have any questions, please email industry@edfilmfest.org.uk.
