ALBANY, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 02, 2020
The Northeast Filmmakers Lab announces its slate of eleven lab fellows including 7 feature screenplays, 2 shorts, and 2 documentaries. The 3 day virtual event will be held November 13-15th and includes opportunities for filmmaker and industry participants to hone skills, network and advance projects. Hosted by the non-profit Capital Cinema Cultural Exchange, Inc. (CCCE) the lab’s mission is to support emerging filmmakers to complete and present their projects in a rapidly changing media landscape by leveraging world-class industry expertise through the Northeast Filmmakers Lab (NEFL).
Three Film Talks from “How To Pitch” with Jacob Krueger to “Finance and Filming During Covid” with Vinca Jarrett of FilmPro Finance and Dan Mirvish, founder SlamDance, and “Marketing, Promotion and Distribution” with Mat Levy of Passion River Films is part of its strategic model. CCCE partnership with international institutions not only sustains regional filmmakers, yet includes moviemakers from around the globe, broadening its mission to support emerging filmmakers and dynamic cross-cultural exchange.
Presenting stories range from an Indigenous community in South America, to a personal exploration of one's favorite American band. NEFL 7 is among the most diverse slate of projects to date, bringing storytellers together for a unique and unprecedented experience of cultural and professional exchange.
Based in Upstate NY, NEFL 7 has expanded its borders in 2020. The 3-day lab intensive will be held completely online for the first time. This year launches an international partnership with Cabiria Film Fest based in Brazil with two Brazilian female filmmakers selected among the eleven lab fellows.
NEFL7 concludes with a PITCH CONTEST open to filmmakers outside the lab. Prizes include $10,000 in production services including a DGA script breakdown from Crew Me Up, legal consultation from FilmPro Finance and 4-week screenwriter’s course with Jacob Krueger.
As a case study, the lab will screen The Way Forward, an award-winning experimental feature film directed by upstate NY’s Roman Jaquez that has garnered international attention.
