The EAST–WEST TALENT LAB is an innovative young professionals’ programme at goEast. Focusing on the transfer of knowledge, creativity and project ideas, the programme intends to forge links between young filmmakers, artists, and film and media students from Germany (with an emphasis on the Rhine-Main region) and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe.

A broad range of workshops and master classes given by experts impart crucial core competences and offer profound knowledge both of the film industry as well as the production of experimental films and video art  outside established industry mechanisms and economics. Essential topics are the basics of European co-productions and the process of successful pitching as well as the limits and intersections of short film, experimental film and video art. Representatives of national film and video-art funding institutions from Central Europe will furnish information about their subsidy structures and opportunities of financial support.
Mentors advise the participants on developing their own projects. The participants will be invited to pitch their projects in front of a specialized jury and then receive direct feedback. The best pitch will receive a project development prize.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR THE EAST–WEST TALENT LAB?

The EAST–WEST TALENT LAB addresses students and graduates of directing and producing as well as young filmmakers and artists from Germany and Eastern Europe (excluding Turkey and Greece). Up to 30 places are available each year. Filmmakers and video artists presenting their work within the goEast Experimental Film and Video Art Competition will be admitted to the EAST–WEST TALENT LAB automatically.
Directors must submit a project idea that is not yet in production. Applicants must be aged between 18 and 35. English will be the language of communication at the EAST–WEST TALENT LAB. 

WHAT IS NEEDED TO SUBMIT?

  • the completed application form
  • CV and filmography
  • a description of the project idea (no longer than one page)
  • a reference film on DVD or via web link
