TFL Meeting Event: 8 projects to be featured within TFL Coming Soon 2020!

October 6, 2020

The TFL Meeting Event 2020 is getting closer (16-20 November 2020), and it is time to unveil the 8 feature film projects that will be presented in the frame of TFL Coming Soon!


This section is composed of films developed within TorinoFilmLab’s programmes and currently in post-production or ready to be released in international festivals. An audience of Decision Makers (sales agents, distributors and festival representatives) will have the opportunity to have a sneak peek at their first images!

TFL Coming Soon is an essential brick for these upcoming TFL Films, assuring a higher exposure and privileged access to the market. The last edition welcomed Massoud Bakhshi’s (Iran) sophomore film YALDA, which premiered and was awarded at Sundance Film Festival 2020, as well as SWEAT by Magnus von Horn (Sweden), selected in Official Selection at Cannes Film Festival 2020.

The 2020 line-up features an international selection with a strong presence from Asia (Bangladesh, Cambodia, Philippines, Singapore), as well as title set in Latin America (Brazil, Venezuela) and Europe (Germany, Switzerland). It includes the three projects awarded with the TFL Audience Design Fund 2020, TFL’s distribution support consisting of a € 45.000 grant and the participation in a tailor-made consultancy.

Among these 8 titles, 6 are still looking for a sales agent. Two of them already started their festival circuit: EL FATHER PLAYS HIMSELF had its world premiere last April at Visions du Réel, and THE SALT IN OUR WATERS will be presented twice this October, at BFI London Film Festival and Busan International Film Festival.
