Call for applications: FIDLab Marseille

 

CALL FOR PRODUCERS

 

Dear EAVE producers,

FIDLAB and EAVE are glad to invite you to apply for the 5th edition of the FIDLAB (Marseille, July 4th-5th) and discover 10 brand new film projects at all stages of development.

FIDLab is a professional platform for coproduction support, organizing meetings between projects and possible co-producers, distributors, representatives of international cinema funds, sales agents, curators, programmers and other potential financiers. FIDLab offers a dynamic and active work environment, where artistic and economic joint ventures are created.

For the call for entries 2013, 10 projects, all with a budget under 1 million Euros were selected from more than 300 applications from 60 countries. In the past 4 editions FIDLab has received 1306 applications, among which, 47 were selected to participate at the platform: about 50% of those projects are now films with a rich and divers life and  visibility.

FIDLab lasts for two days: visual and oral presentations are followed by one-to-one meetings. The FIDLab has the same criteria as FIDMarseille: it has no restriction of genre, lenght or format; and gives a particular attention to those films that cross the boundaries between fiction and documentary.

Different from a market pitching, FIDLab offers the professional audience a chance to discover the projects through images, rushes, roughcuts, photos, artistic references and all the material that may increase the understanding of the project. In a diverse international context, FIDLab aims to reinforce projects chosen not only for their artistic and creative qualities, but also for their international potential and market accessibility.

FIDLab is a meeting place for discussing film projects, offering film-makers an opportunity to make useful contacts and networking thanks to match-maked and free one-to-one meetings, as well as more informal moments of encounter.

In the framework of the partnership with EAVE we will select 4 producers to participate in the 2013 edition of the FIDLab. This invitation will include 3 nights of hotel accommodation and an industry accreditation for the festival.  

In order to apply, please send, no later than May 9, your CV and a short letter of motivation to the following addresses: fidlab@fidmarseille.orgfranciscalucero@fidmarseille.org
