V Dominican Film Lab

The laboratory is designed to advise each project individually, and then proceed with an analysis collectively. On the last day, participants will have the opportunity to pitch their project to professionals in the film industry, both nationally and internationally.

The V Dominicana Film Lab will address the issue of how a film project is presented, as well as offer advice on production, direction, search for funds, and viability and production schemes.
