First Cut Lab is back for TIFF2022

11.04.2022 10:42

First Cut Lab Cluj 2022 is a programme designed for 2 long feature films in editing phase from Romania.

Selected producer/director teams will screen their full rough cut in a private session and receive expert feedback on their edit from three top international film professionals (creative producers, festival programmers, sales agents, etc) as well as tailor-made advice from consultant editor Agnieszka Glinska and editorial consultant Wim Vanacker.

The main goal is to foster the artistic potential of the selected rough cuts and, at the same time, to increase the sales, festival and circulation potential of the completed films.

For any further information you can contact us via email at

The deadline for submitting the entry form is 15. May 2022.

Selected projects will have to pay participation fees of 500 Euros before the program starts.

More details can be found here.

Founded in 2015 at the When East Meets West co-production forum at the Trieste Film Festival, the First Cut Lab program is an independent initiative led by Tatino Films. To date, the program has supported 51 films, many of which were later screened at festivals such as Cannes, Berlinale, Toronto, Kalovy Vary and San Sebastian.
