The European Genre Forum announces projects for 2020!


The European Genre Forum EGF, taking place for 6th time this year, has selected eight projects to attend two talent labs in 2020.  

The eight projects are invited to attend two talent labs in 2020, the first one, The Producing Lab takes place at Fantastic Zagreb, July 16 -19, 2020. The mentors in Zagreb coaching the teams include the CEO of  P1 Kemppinen Petri Kemppinen (former CEO of Nordisk Film & TV Fond) and international script consultant, screenwriter and trainer Simona Nobile.

Karlo Funk, Head of Tallinn Lab at EGF commented that this year projects from all over the world – Europe, Japan, and the USA – were submitted to the forum. “The themes of identity, deception, time travel, and AI are at the center of the stories of EGF2020,” he added. 

The Marketing&Packaging Lab takes place in Tallinn during Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event, in the final week of November. During the talent labs, the teams of selected film projects will be able to discuss their ideas with script consultants, learn about the different aspects of (co-) production, sales, and packaging from Industry professionals.
