MSF Advanced


Program
MSF Advanced is primarily aimed at MSF finalists from previous years (alumni). It aims to support the different development phases of feature film projects, helping them be selected in international major script funds and film markets. It intends to put the best of these projects in contact with recognized industry decision-makers. Only 6 projects will be selected among the projects submitted.
After individual consultancies with tutors (1 hour for each project) in order to prepare one-to-one meetings, candidates will present their projects during a pitching session with industry decision-makers (30′ for each project).

Calendar
Applications are now closed.
The deadline for MSF Advanced’s applications was October 20.
The 6 finalists will be announced November 1.
The MSF Advanced will take place online through Zoom from December 1 to 8.
Please note preparing online sessions will be held the week of November 24.
