This Is IT

After the great success of the past editions of Last Stop Trieste, work in progress section dedicated to creative documentaries, When East Meets West and Trieste Film Festival expand their initiatives targeting projects in post-production phase and launch a new section exclusively dedicated to long feature fiction films produced or co-produced by Italian producers.
The idea is to create a unique opportunity for the selected teams that have the chance to present their works and screen 10’ of their films to an exclusive panel of more than 40 international sales agents, festival programmers and buyers. This is IT has selected 6 long feature fiction films and an international jury composed by Iole Maria Giannattasio (MIBACT), Rémi Bonhomme (Semaine de la Critique) e Gabor Greiner (Films Boutique) will deliver the LASER FILM Award, a special in kind prize consisting in 10,000 EUR. Thanks to the partnership with Milano Film Network (MFN) all films submitted to L’Atelier MFN 2017 and to This is IT will be shared and considered by both selection committees. The main goal is to offer a dual opportunity to all Italian producers, fostering their chances to attract distribution partners on a domestic and international level.
