The first edition of FILM+ was launched in August 2016 to provide a working support and guidance lab for filmmakers of short films. We decided to select projects with potential, regardless of genre (fiction, animation, documentary, experimental) and regardless of the stage of production: script development, production or post-production. We supported each project, taking into account its specific needs and the resources we had available: partners, consultants, and industry collaborators. The first edition of the film lab (2016-2017) was finalized by 10 participants, selected from 51 entries. The projects were supported in one the following three directions: development, filming, post-production.
