Online FIDLab 2020 unveils 15 co-pro projects (6-10 July)

The FIDLab international co-production platform announced June 10 the 15 projects that will be presented online in 2020. The selection was made from 440 submissions (up 23% on 2019) and represents 15 countries: Argentina, Brazil, Georgia, Hong Kong, Canada, Chile, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the US.

 

Seven of the selected projects are at development stage while five are at script stage. One project is in production and two are in post-production. See project details below.

 

FIDMarseille (July 22-26) will share details of the 2020 selection in due course, but underlined its commitment to a live event in a statement which reads, in part:

 

“Convinced that a film is a living organism, as fragile as it is powerful; convinced even more than ever that a festival, in bringing together these magnificent fragilities and incredible strengths, is in turn a mobile assembly, we are happy to be able to share this new calendar with you. The FID will be held in Marseille from July 22nd to 26th.

 

“Come and share our joy in making you discover our selection of films, each one unique, all beautiful, in exclusivity. We are waiting for you, many of you, to meet the film teams present, with a concern for the health of all.”
