It may be easy to get lost among all the TFL programmes and initiatives. You can consider this your personal spring recap of 2021 equipped with swift and painless information and deadlines. Have a look, take a note, and get in touch with us if something isn’t clear or if you have any questions.

By May 25th: TFL Audience Design Fund
It targets production or sales companies based in one of the countries participating in the MEDIA sub-programme. 

This fund supports film teams to create innovative audience engagement and outreach strategies up to and during the distribution stage of their films. Three selected projects will receive 45.000 euros each plus customised sessions with our TFL Audience Design consultants to develop a unique strategy and to make the best out of the grant assigned.

By June 30th: Up & Coming Italia 
This call, specifically dedicated to Italian cinema, targets emerging Italian producers who have already obtained national and/or international recognition and are taking their first steps into international co-production.

A group of 4 emerging producers together with the directors of their projects will be the protagonists of an exclusive plan of activities that will take place during Torino Film Industry, from the 27th to 29th of November 2021. They will receive dedicated guidance complemented by a range of activities to enhance their visibility and help them to strengthen their connections with the industry.

By July 5th: TFL Extended – Film 2021
This call is addressed to teams of international professionals, with projects at an early development stage who are willing to dive deep into the writing process through an intensive residential workshop.

25 projects will be selected to work in 5 groups, each guided by a tutor with a wide international experience as a script consultant. Throughout the workshop, the participants will test a wide range of possibilities for the creative development of their projects by working on the treatment.

Have we said that this workshop will take place in Madrid from 22nd to 26th September 2021? Of course, if traveling will be allowed. But we stay optimistic.
