TorinoFilmLab Meeting Event 2019

The TFL Meeting Event takes place every year in parallel with the Torino Film Festival: this year’s edition will happen on 21-23 November 2019, while the 37th Torino Film Festival will take place on 22-30 November.

It is the annual showcase of the projects, talents and films developed at TorinoFilmLab, featuring a global co-production forum for independent original or adapted feature films (with a focus on emerging directors), a presentation of the professionals trained within the scheme. Last but not least, it is a moment to reward the best projects with awards & production grants, the TFL Production and TFL Co-Production Awards, as well as collateral prizes.
