TFL Next 2021: the first calls dedicated to Films and TV Series projects are open!

December 15, 2020

TFL Next consists of carefully crafted online workshops to help filmmakers from all over the world to move forward with their projects. This new initiative, framed around 2 intensive sessions organized within a month, represents a unique opportunity to enhance, share and test ideas with peers and high-level international tutors.

At the end of the development work, the participants join a virtual pitching session where tutors and industry guests will give feedback on their projects. 

The two calls launched today, addressed to feature film and TV series projects in early stages of development, will stay open until January 31st, 2021

TFL Next - Film

The workshops are addressed to international directors, scriptwriters and producers with feature film projects at an early development stage: participants will exclusively work on the treatments. The projects can be presented individually or in a team (maximum of 2 participants per team).

A total of 16 projects will be selected and divided into 4 groups, to work alongside peers and a tutor with substantial international experience as a script consultant. The first development session will last from March 29th to April 3rd and the second one will take place on April 19th and 20th.

TFL Next - TV

In this case, we look for international directors, screenwriters and producers willing to implement the fundamental techniques and skills necessary to develop and produce a successful TV series.

After working on the concept of their projects with peers and tutors, the 16 selected teams will bring home the tools necessary to develop their own original and ambitious TV series projects

The workshop will unfold between March 22nd and March 26th, and the second session will be on April 21st and 22nd.
