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 are 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).
