Manchester’s brand new cross-art centre and Italy’s unique artist film festival unite to present the ground-breaking first European
intensive training program for visual artists developing and producing their first feature film.

Spanning six months and two locations, the program combines masterclasses, case studies, workshops, screenings,
one-to-one meetings and pitching sessions for directors who are developing their first feature film.
Participants will gain essential new skills and the expertise needed to advance their early stage feature film projects for theatrical distribution and exhibition.
