RED SEA LODGE 2ND EDITION, WHERE AMBITIONS ARE HONED, AND THE NEXT BIG THING IS MADE
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. Submit your project for your chance to be part of the eight-month program.
Applications open from Monday, 25 January 2021 to Saturday, 27 February 2021.
In 2021, the Lodge expands across seven months (duration is subject to change depending on the to-be-announced festival dates) and five workshops to give you a broad overview and strong grounding to explore your project's full dramatic and production potential. You’ll 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.
