The Open Doors Projects Hub is an international platform for eight selected feature film projects within Latin America and the Caribbean looking for international collaborations.
At the Open Doors Projects Hub, the selected project-holders will be introduced to European and international industry professionals with the aim to encourage collaborations in terms of co-production, funding and distribution, or professional training.
The program will take place in two phases: at first, online during the month of July between the 19th and the 29th, then onsite from 7 to 14 of August, in the framework of Locarno Film Festival and Locarno Pro.
Over the two phases, it will alternate coaching, group discussions and group work, professional meetings and networking activities.
