The IIUSFF Talents 2020 is an international platform that supports student filmmakers from all over the world. The program is organized by Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS), in association with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and Goethe-Institut Bangladesh.
This year, because of the ongoing global pandemic situation, the IIUSFF Talents 2020 is being held online from October 25-30.
This year's Talents session will feature a script lab, pitching session, masterclass, and filmmaking funds.
Two filmmaking funds will be given to the best projects of IIUSFF Talents 2020. The funds are supported by Goethe-Institut Bangladesh.
The six-day long script lab will help the participants to develop the script of their film and prepare the project for pitching. Expert mentors from different continents of the world will guide the participants through this process via group meetings and one-to-one sessions.
Four Masterclasses will be held during the program. Participants of the script lab are directly registered for the masterclasses. University Students can also participate in the masterclasses via registration. The details and registration links of the classes will be announced online.
A mock pitching session will be held on the last day of the IIUSFF Talents 2020. The final pitching session is scheduled to be held on Nov 20-21 in the presence of producers, investors, funders and industry professionals.
To join the sessions, applicants need to submit an online form till October 19.
