The workshop for films in editing phase

First Cut Lab Trieste is a programme designed for 3 long feature fiction films in editing phase from the focus countries of WEMW 2021: Israel and Italy. Especially, First Cut Lab is encouraging minority co-productions with Italy to apply for the Lab.

The workshop will take place from 24-28 January 2021.

The selected teams (director/producer/editor) are offered a creative framework, both benevolent & challenging, where to discuss and explore the artistic potential of their films. They screen their rough cut in a private session, and receive expert feedbacks from three international film industry advisors, as well as tailor-made advice from a consultant editor. Once the workshop is over, they receive a report & a roadmap that can serve as guidance for further editing. Eventually, the ambition of First Cut Lab is to enhance the audience potential of the films.
