The workshop for films in editing phase

First Cut Lab is a programme designed for 3 long feature fiction films in editing phase from Eastern Europe and Italy. Selected producer/director teams will receive tailor-made advice from a consulting editor (Benjamin Mirguet) and expert feedback from top international film professionals (creative producers, festival programmers, sales agents, etc). 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. FCL will take place in Trieste on January 20-23, 2018 and will be led by Matthieu Darras and Alex Traila.
