The Screenwriters Lab is a five-day writers’ workshop that gives independent screenwriters the opportunity to work intensively on their feature film scripts with the support of established writers in an environment that focuses on the art and craft of screenwriting and creative risk taking. Through one-on-one story sessions with creative advisors, fellows engage in an artistically rigorous process that offers indispensable lessons in craft to facilitate the deep exploration needed to fully realize their material.

For its 2021 edition, producers can submit their projects of films and series for young audiences in three categories: in development, work in progress and market presentation.

Animation Sans Frontières is a 4×2 weeks lecture/workshop-based training programme designed to give junior European animation film and production professionals an understanding of the European and international animation industry and markets, as well the space, time and tools to develop, finance and produce their own projects, careers and eventually production companies.

Every autumn holiday, Cinekid takes place: the world's biggest children's film and media festival. The latest films, television productions, media installations, workshops and tutorials can be seen at the festival and at various Cinekid on Tour locations.

This year again, 20 upcoming writers will be selected to take part in the one-week writing training. Mentored by high standard professionals in a creative hub near Lille, candidates will have the opportunity to develop their TV series project with renowned tutors (Sarah Treem in 2018, the Jacquemetton duo in 2019), and then meet and pitch their project to TV industry producers, broadcasters and platforms during Series Mania Forum.

ScriptLab trains scriptwriters and directors developing a script for a feature film, as well as story editors. It ventures into exploring different ways in which an audiovisual project can be born: a script based on an original story or an adaptation based on a pre-existing work.

This is a training platform for emerging talents aimed at scouting the most talented filmmakers and producers of the future who are developing their first or second feature film projects. It focuses primarily on creative teams from Central and Eastern Europe.

The Series Lab Hamburg is a development and co-production event that brings together twenty European producers with a television drama series in progress and who are looking for international partners.

Four renowned international script experts work intensively with the teams on their projects. In addition, the Series Lab offers the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with more than 20 European financiers, from commissioning editors to international sales agents.

The Institute’s core activity, the MFI Script 2 Film Workshops, is an advanced script and project development program. Its primary objective is to fully develop the participating screenplays through a process of workshops that focus on script analysis, revision and rewriting. Special attention is given to developing each separate project’s potential, while guiding participating writers and producers to strongly connect with international audiences and industry professionals.

With their 7-step strategy, they want to set up an ecosystem for Impact Producing in Flanders.

They want to give a new selection of film teams the chance to develop an impact campaign. In doing so, they work together with NGOs, governments, experts and many other partners from the film sector on films that have an impact on the world.

- The entire film team (director and producer) commits to participating in the impact trajectory.

- Coaching by the Filmpact team + external experts

- An impact producer who, together with the film team, develops an impact strategy, searches for extra funding and helps to develop the campaign.

The programme offers a space for screenwriters to consolidate skills, exchange ideas, and discuss challenges, all within a collaborative five-day intensive lab at TIFF Bell Lightbox. Participants are supported to take their careers and projects to the next level as they participate in workshops, panel discussions, peer-to-peer mentorship, and one-on-one project development consultations guided by Canadian and international experts.
