Friday 9 March – 17:00-18:00  – Kriterion K2


FilmLAB is the talent development program of CinemAsia, in which CinemAsia offers young film talent with Dutch-Asian roots a platform to make their diaspora stories into a short film. With FilmLAB, CinemAsia contributes to making the Dutch film and television landscape more inclusive and enriches it with their talents and stories.

FilmLAB wants to offer talent a springboard and make it visible to the industry and has therefore invited Film Academy director Bart Römer to talk with the FilmLAB participants and interested parties about following a film training, filmmaking as a profession, and about the Dutch film industry.
