VdR–Rough Cut Lab

VdR–Rough Cut Lab is a workshop that presents a selection of feature length projects at a finishing stage. It is a springboard for creative documentaries that are seeking specific feedback and advice on their most up-to-date rough cut.

Our call for projects is now open. If you wish to submit a project, please follow this link.

The Rough Cut Lab supports filmmakers in the moment of editing and helps them find the best way to finish their films. Four rough cuts are discussed together with the film team alongside tutors (experienced editors and industry professionals) during a workshop session. Attending individual meetings allows the project teams to also connect with potential financing and distribution partners.

First deadline: November 7, 2022 – for projects already ready for submission.
Final deadline: December 22, 2022

VdR–Rough Cut Lab’s workshop sessions are open to the film team alongside tutors only (experienced editors and industry professionals).

For further information regarding this activity, we invite you to read our Terms and Regulations.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at industry@visionsdureel.ch.
