The MFBS is running two four-day training sessions, the first in the mountain town of Ronda, in southern Spain, June 21-24, the second in Turkey, Oct. 4-8.

Sessions include case study analysis and one-to-one consultation about the projects of participating producers and directors to accelerate financing and hone their market potential.

Course is open to filmmakers from the European-Mediterranean partnership countries of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine and Turkey.
