Rough Cut Lab 2020


<– Projects 2020
<– Industry Activities

As part of Visions du Réel Industry, the Rough Cut Lab invites four film teams, with a creative documentary at finishing stage, to present their rough cut to industry professionals in order to get specific feedbacks and advices. The idea is to support filmmakers in the moment of editing. Four rough cuts will be screened and discussed together with a tutor and a moderator, the film team and some selected experts during a working session.
