The unique rough-cut lab founded by Docaviv and the New Fund for Cinema and TV is offering professional guidance and personal acquaintance with senior international mentors in the fields of production, direction, distribution, and festivals, for documentary projects in editing and rough-cut stages.
The lab is headed by Joëlle Alexis, senior Israeli-Belgian editor. This year's international mentors include Tereza Šimíková (Head of CPH:FORUM), Ania Trzebiatowska (Sundance programmer), and Thomas Krag (Danish editor and editing instructor).
Filmmakers and industry professionals are invited to join the first day of the lab when mentors will present and discuss the selected projects.
