The selection has been made of the 3 projects that will proceed to the production phase of the Biennale College – Cinema, consisting in two further workshops that will make it possible to actually make a mini-budget film, with funding of 150,000 euro each.
The 3 projects, chosen at the end of the first workshop among the 12 previously selected projects from all around the world (presented by a team of directors and producers) are:
- BABY BUMP, Kuba Czekaj (director), Magdalena Kaminska (producer);
- BLANKA, Kohki Hasei (director), Flaminio Zadra (producer);
- THE FITS, Anna Rose Holmer (director), Lisa Kjerulff (producer).
The goal is to present the 3 feature-length films, debut or second works, at the coming 72th Venice International Film Festival (2 – 12 September 2015), directed by Alberto Barbera and organized by the Biennale chaired by Paolo Baratta.
The 9 projects that will not continue to the second workshop will in any case enjoy an online follow-up and will be given various opportunities to find co-producers in collaboration with IFP, TorinoFilmLab and others.
