Venice Fest Expands Final Cut Workshop From Africa To Middle East

ROME – The Venice Film Festival is opening up its “Final Cut in Venice” workshop, which supports African films in post, to pics also coming from Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria.

Last year the innovative workshop, organised by the Venice Film Market in collaboration with both the Amiens International Film Festival and the Fribourg International Film Festival, was restricted to four films from Africa. Final Cut has now expanded into Middle East territories with fertile cinematographies where making movies can be an especially tough task.

Up to six films selected as works-in-progress will be presented to producers, buyers, distributors and international fest honchos to facilitate their post-production process, promote possible co-production partnerships and access to the distribution market. There will be ample opportunities for networking. 

The second edition of the two-day workshop will take place August 31-September 1 during the VFM.

The deadline for registration and for sending two copies of the film (required formats: DVD or Blu-ray disc) or a link with the password to see the film online, is June 20, 2014.

The 71st edition of Venice will run August 27-September 6.
