In addition to our established formats – the Swiss Film School Day, the Industry Lab, and the Creators’ Room – there are exciting opportunities for filmmakers in various phases of production.
During Kurzfilmtage, FOCAL again offers free coaching sessions for six to eight short film projects. This is an opportunity for screenwriters and directors to receive professional feedback on their scripts.
European Short Pitch supports short film projects in the postproduction phase. Selected participants benefit from mentoring sessions dedicated to distribution, sales, pitching, and editing, and from the Coproduction Forum.
The Project Development Residency sponsored by P.AiR.S offers a seven-week stay in the Paradiesli guest house and arts centre. During that period, P.AiR.S will also host a talk with other artists and a closing exhibition.
The Postproduction Award, a non-cash prize worth CHF 10 000 donated by Jingle Jungle, goes to an independent, professional Swiss short film production. The award-winning project will receive postproduction services.
