POST PRODUCTION PLATFORM

Post Production Platform is a fund for feature-length narrative and documentary projects in post-production by directors of Arab nationality or origin. Post Production Platform was established to support and encourage Arab filmmakers to professionalize the finalization of their film productions and provide them with the opportunity to promote it at an international film forum.

The Post-Production Platform supports filmmakers by offering them assistance and coaching to complete their projects. We will hold closed screenings of 20 min excerpts from 8 new feature films (narrative and documentary) that are in the final stages of the editing process or available for distribution. A panel of select industry experts and a jury provides immediate individual feedback.

The films are screened in an intimate environment. This is a chance to see clips from a film-in-the-making and provide valuable peer feedback to its director.

The screenings will be followed by a day of pre-booked one-on-one meetings tailored to the needs of the projects where participants will be able to present their projects in more detail to industry experts and jury members.

The Post-Production Platform will pay accommodation for one representative for each selected project during their stay in Malmö during MAFF Market Forum 2020
