Each year, the Open Doors Lab selects eight producers/filmmaker-producers, who are invited to Locarno to attend a personalized program focused on the role of the creative producer, providing them with tools to best approach the project development stage and to work with international film professionals, while increasing their entrepreneurial skills.
The six-day program combines group discussions, screenings, individual consultancy meetings and networking opportunities with industry decision makers and Festival guests.
Our intention is to offer a professional platform to the invited South Asian producers/filmmaker-producers, not only to help them better grasp the specificities of the international marketplace and be aware of its varied opportunities, but also to encourage discussions and the sharing of information, experiences and practices, as well as mutual inspiration.
The ultimate goal of the Open Doors Lab is to contribute to the development of a more collaborative worldwide film community without borders, while making the independent scene stronger and more sustainable locally, regionally and globally.
