Eurimages Lab Project Award 2020

The award will be given for the 5th time at the Karlovy Vary IFF to the most promising film project. Eurimages wishes to invest in new forms of cinematographic expression often crossing to other art forms.

You may find this year’s selection here.

Producers or directors have up to 10 minutes to present each project, which includes three short excerpts from the film. Following the panel, we assist interested visitors of the programme to set up individual meetings with the presenters to get more information about their projects.
