First Cut Lab workshop in Helsinki September 10–13 – extended deadline!

June 17, 2019

Selected producer/director teams will screen their full rough cut in a private session and receive expert feedback on their edit from three international film advisors (including Head of Lab Matthieu Darras), as well as tailor-made advice from consultant editor Benjamin Mirguet.

The main goal is to foster the artistic potential of the selected rough cuts and, at the same time, to increase the sales, festival and circulation potential of the completed films.

The workshop will take place from 10–13 September 2019 in Helsinki. The workshop is organized in collaboration with The Finnish Film Foundation.

Deadline for applications is July 21. Please find the call for proposals for First Cut Lab Finland on the website:
