Please note that to apply, you will need:

  1. English-subtitled rough-cut of your film or edited scenes in the length of minimum 40 min. (max. 2GB, we prefer mp4/mov format); an additional edited pilot/trailer/teaser of the film is an advantage
  2. one edited scene (max. 5 minutes) by applicant editor, preferably from the submitted rough-cut but if not possible, then some example of his/her previous work
  3. film treatment (max. 1 page) based on the shot material
  4. short synopsis
  5. motivational letters from all the team members: director, editor and producer (max. half-page)
  6. rough distribution strategy, including the estimated premiere time and place
  7. financing plan of the film (specify non-/confirmed funding)
  8. stills from your film
  9. portrait photo of director, editor and producer, their CVs and contact details
  10. link to the previous film of the director

Be aware that all three team members – director, editor and producer – must be available to participate in three one-week residential sessions in April, June and September. You cannot apply without an editor. Please book your editor in advance: for an editing period between the 1st and 2nd workshop, and for another between the 2nd and 3rd workshops. Please note that all the participants must be able to work in English.

The editing rooms are fully equiped except for the computer – you need to bring your own laptop together with storage device containing all the footage.

You will attend three one-week residential sessions at different project development stages (the dates and locations will be confirmed later):

1st session: April – Slovakia / rough cut
2nd session: June – Czech Republic / fine cut
3rd session: September – Sweden / near picture lock

The arrival at the workshop is always a day before its start and the departure the day after it finishes.

All non-English visual materials must be subtitled in English (it does not have to be a perfect translation, but it should make the storyline understandable to the viewer). We also recommend that English-speaking projects be subtitled (to avoid misunderstandings due to sound quality or regional accents).

We guarantee to keep the rough-cut version you send us strictly confidential and only to share it with the selection committee for the selection purposes.
