As just announced in Screen International, I’m very thrilled to be one of the writers on the Edinburgh International Film Festival’s 2013 TALENT LAB. The Lab will bring together 30 emerging directors, producers and screenwriters with UK and international film professionals. I’ll be attending with my new project JAM JAR, a dark feature about the extremes of desire and envy, and also my romantic comedy MASTERBAKER.
Guests at this year’s Talent Lab will include representatives from Bankside Films, Vertigo Films, The Salt Company, Film4, Young Films and Slate Films; the Lab is supported through the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund, by Creative Scotland, Creative Skillset and Creative England.
In the SI article, Chris Fujiwara, artistic director of EIFF, said: “I’m very happy that our festival will once again this year contribute to the development of filmmaking talent through these vital programmes…The high level of accomplishment among the participants is an encouraging sign for the future of cinema.”
Which is nice.
