FIRST CUT LAB 2019
For the first time ever, KVIFF Eastern Promises platform is happy to become the official second hub for First Cut Lab – an expert workshop for fiction films in editing phase for films from Central & Eastern Europe and the Arab world.
First Cut Lab Karlovy Vary is a programme designed for three long feature fiction films in editing phase: one from Central and Eastern Europe, one from Czech Republic or Slovakia and one from the Middle East. Selected filmmakers will screen their rough cuts in private sessions and receive expert feedbacks on their edits from three top international film professionals (creative producers, festival programmers, sales agents, etc) as well as tailor-made advice from a consultant editor.
