Objective & Format

Dedicated to teams of a first or second film in its final production stages, the Rough Cut Lab gives them coaching, expert advice and privileged access to decision makers. The idea is to assist filmmakers in finding the best way to finish their films. Each rough cut will be screened and discussed together with the film team and cinema experts for three hours, moderated by a tutor.
