Final Cut in Venice 9th edition (September 5th – September 7th) The 6 work-in-progress films have been selected

 

The 6 work-in-progress films of the 9th edition of Final Cut in Venice have been selected. Final Cut in Venice is the project that has been providing since 2013 concrete assistance in the completion of films from all African countries and from Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria. Final Cut in Venice is one of the projects launched by the Venice Production Bridge of the 78th Venice International Film Festival (September 1—11, 2021), directed by Alberto Barbera and organized by La Biennale di Venezia.

The workshop offers the opportunity to present films still in production phase to international film professionals, in order to facilitate post-production and film market access.

The workshop consists in three days of activities (September 5th to 7th 2021) on the Venice Lido during the 78th Venice Film Festival, in which the working copies of the selected films are introduced to producers, buyers, distributors, post-production companies and film festival programmers.

Please note that the first 2 days of the workshop (September 5th and 6th) are devoted to the screenings, while a special one-to-one meeting session between the selected projects and the professionals attending the Venice Production Bridge will be organized on the third day, September 7th.

The 6 work in progress films selected are:


FICTION

Under the Fig Trees by Erige Sehiri (Tunisia, Qatar, Switzerland, France)

Mami Wata by C.J. “Fiery” Obasi (Nigeria, France)

We, Students! by Rafiki Fariala (Central African Republic, France, Democratic Republic of Congo, Italy)
