JAMAICA AT ROTTERDAM LAB 2022
The 22nd edition of the Rotterdam Lab will take place from the last week in January to the 1st week of February, 2022 (Exact dates to be confirmed). In 2022, the acclaimed Rotterdam Lab will have a hybrid in-person and online edition of its programme, which provides invaluable training workshops to up and coming producers. With approximately 75 producers from all over the world attending the sessions, this will be an opportunity to connect with the international film industry, network with other emerging producers, and to develop a project.
JAFTA and JAMPRO have partnered with the International Film Festival of Rotterdam (IFFR) in the Netherlands to select and send one (1) emerging Jamaican producer to the 2022 Rotterdam Lab. JAFTA will manage and oversee the call and shortlist selection and developmental process and JAMPRO will provide financial sponsorship for attendance. Both JAFTA and JAMPRO will provide in-kind support to the selected participant before and at the Lab.
