Travel Assistance for 2011 Rotterdam Lab

Each year Screen Australia, in partnership with the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), offers a special travel grant scheme for three producers to attend the Rotterdam Lab, organised as part of CineMart at the IFFR, 30 January-2 February 2011.

The Rotterdam Lab is a four-day training workshop for young and emerging producers designed to build up their international network and their experience at an international festival and market. Up to 50 emerging producers are selected from various countries.

The IFFR organises group sessions each morning with key members of the industry, giving participants the chance to learn about international feature film sales, financing, distribution, and attending international film markets and pitching forums/competitions. Afternoons are open for participants to experience the Rotterdam Film Festival and CineMart/marketplace environment, with organised networking and social functions held each evening.

Emerging Australian producers wishing to apply for travel assistance must have a feature film project in development, thematically suited to the festival and potentially ready for submission to CineMart 2011. They must also have producer credits on either a short, feature film or documentary that has performed well at key international film festivals.

Screen Australia is offering $3,000 each to three producers to attend the 2011 Lab. Five nights accommodation in Rotterdam will also be provided by the festival.

Travel assistance guidelines and application forms are available to download from the Screen Australia website.

More information can be found on the IFFR and Screen Australia websites.

The deadline for applications is 9am Monday 29 November 2010.
