Red Sea Lodge 2021
Open to teams of Saudi and Arab directors and producers, with scriptwriters if on board. This intensive creative and professional training program will take your project from idea to reality. Every year, it turns ambitious emerging filmmakers into the next big thing.
For filmmakers on the cusp of their big break, the Red Sea Lodge, in collaboration with TorinoFilmLab, selects projects for creative and professional mentorship, development, and next-level industry opportunities.
In 2021, the Lodge expands across nine months and five workshops to give you a broad overview and strong grounding to explore your project’s full dramatic and production potential. Participants will be mentored by a Head of Script Development and Head of Production, with guidance from specialists across the industry.
Alongside ongoing script development sessions, the programme features a producers coaching programme and covers professional development, production, financing, sales and marketing. During the workshop participants also have the opportunity to work with internationally experienced experts from the fields of directing, cinematography, editing sound, and post-production, sales.
Following development and meetings with industry professionals, two projects will be awarded the annual Red Sea Lodge two production prizes – $100,000 each – a grant and a premiere at the next Red Sea International Film Festival.
