Final Cut in Venice

Golden Lion, La Biennale

From 5th to 7th September 2021

The Venice Film Market and the Venice International Film Festival collaborate as well with the International Film Festival Fribourg (FIFF) as with the Amiens International Film Festival and invite you to take part in the seventh Final Cut in Venice workshop supporting films in postproduction from the African continent, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria.

Registration is open only for projects in postproduction directed by filmmakers from the regions and countries mentioned above. During the workshop, work-in-progress copies of six films in postproduction will be selected and presented to a professional audience in order to promote possible partnerships for co-production as well as access to the distribution market. There will also be opportunities for networking, encounters and gatherings in which the directors and producers can meet the participants of the workshop.

The Prizes
At the end of the workshop, several prizes in kind or cash will be awarded with the intention to financially support the films in their postproduction process.
