TRIESTE: First Cut Lab is launching its new programme First Cut+, which will promote 16 feature films in postproduction from low production capacity countries, with a focus on Central & Eastern Europe. The first edition will take place during Trieste’s When East Meets West from 16 to 20 January 2020.
First Cut+ will provide additional support to First Cut Lab alumni projects, as well as those from partners MIDPOINT Feature Launch and Groupe Ouest’s LIM, by offering them marketing and promotion consultancy and visibility at the region’s leading industry events KVIFF Eastern Promises and When East Meets West coproduction platform.
The second session will be held during Karlovy Vary Film Festival Eastern Promises Industry Days from 3 to 6 July 2020.
First Cut+ is the only brand-new action to receive financial support from the Access to Markets scheme of the Creative Europe’s MEDIA programme in 2019.
So far 30 films have been supported through First Cut Lab, mostly from the CEE region.
