La Pedrera D’A Film Lab is created
La Pedrera D’A Film Lab springs from a partnership between the professional space of the D’A Film Festival Barcelona and the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation with the goal of creating a new format that seeks to promote and create new talent, as well as ensure their visibility and international outreach. The Pedrera D’A Film Lab is a programme that seeks to promote new film talent by helping novice filmmakers finish feature films in the post-production phase and promote their international circulation.
Six unfinished films will be chosen to receive advice from renowned professionals in the film industry. This training will be held in such a stimulating and inspiring venue as Món Sant Benet, of the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation, located in the province of Barcelona. Finally, the Jury will award a 10,000 euro prize to the best film of the six participants. This award will be revealed at the closure of the D’A Film Festival Barcelona 2020, on 9 May 2020.
Who can submit their films?
Feature films, both fiction and non-fiction, in the post-production phase may be submitted to the La Pedrera D’A Film Lab. The project must be the director's first or second feature film. The participating projects will be chosen by a committee of experts made up of members of the D’A Film Festival Barcelona, the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation and professionals from the cultural and film sector, and it will attempt to ensure that there is equal gender representation among the participants chosen. The selection decision will be announced in the first half of March.
The registration period for projects will open on 19 November and will remain open until 30 January 2020.
Deadline to submit proposals: 19 November - 30 January
