A tailor-made training workshop focusing on the role of the creative producer, providing tools and know-how to approach the international market.
Each year, the Open Doors Producers' Lab selects nine producers or directors-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 training program combines group discussions, screenings, individual consultancy meetings and networking opportunities with industry decision makers and Festival guests.
The intention is to offer a professional platform to the invited participants to discuss the specificities of the regional and international marketplace through discussions and sharing of information, experiences and practices as mutual inspiration.
The ultimate goal of the Open Doors Producers' 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.
