The directors and producers of the five selected projects will be invited to TIFF where, in a six-day marathon workshop, they will form working groups with the trainers. The group activity will focus on effective ideas of "selling" the project in front of prospective institutional partners and financiers, on pitch preparation, and on the trainers' and the advisors' guidance on the scripts and dramaturgical structures of the projects. TPS focuses on groups' interaction and on getting acquainted with each project, thus encouraging collaboration and the exchange of ideas between teams, for a complete creative experience.
