L'Alternativa Profesionales

5th Mentoring Projects

L'Alternativa Profesionales - 5th Mentoring Projects

Mentoring Projects is a session organised by l'Alternativa Professionals since 2013 in collaboration with Catalan Films & TV. It aims to increase production and distribution opportunities for emerging filmmakers by promoting innovative projects and helping the audiovisual industry expand, thanks to the festival’s potential as a platform for raising the visibility of independent filmmaking.

Following our call for projects, an expert was assigned to each of the 18 very different shortlisted audiovisual projects at various stages of development, from treatment to postproduction.

In this 5th edition, the postproduction and digital effects company Antaviana Films will award a prize for the most original and viable project. The prize consists of a Digital Cinema Package of the winning film (valued at €2,500), including a subtitled version and a hard-disk copy.

In addition, l’Alternativa Professionals continues its partnership with Primer Test at REC Tarragona International Film Festival and will enter one of the shortlisted projects at postproduction stage.

Both prizes will be announced at the l’Alternativa Awards Bash on Saturday 18 November.
