The Rotterdam Lab has been developed to give producers knowledge on how to operate in an international market setting. The lab offers panel discussions on development, production, sales, financing, distribution, press & promotion and television. In these panels, experts from the industry give the producers tools on how to present their project and how to build up an international network. The Lab will take place from January 28th - February 2nd 2012.
Complimentary to the panels, participants take part in "speed-dating" sessions, during which they have time to meet personally with industry delegates and receive advice on their own projects. In addition to the organised programme, it is important that the producers take the chance to participate in all other CineMart events, such as networking lunches, cocktails and other panels.
The Lab has resulted in many producers returning with projects to CineMart, and films by producers who have attended the Lab have been screened in the Official Festival Rotterdam Film Festival Programme. More information about the Rotterdam Lab.
NZ producers seeking to attend the Rotterdam Lab should email applications to the NZFC Professional Development Executive, Bonnie Slater firstname.lastname@example.org by October 30.
