We believe in a burst of creativity when the Baltics come together! The TALENT LAB is an educational and networking platform that aims at creating a better engagement between the different disciplines within film-making. This year we call for participants that wish to broaden their understanding of character development and voice-over artistry in animated film and those who are interested in film music. BALTIC FILM TALENT LAB explores these two topics through the professional relationships between film directors and voice-over artists and music composers.
BALTIC LOCATION MANAGERS & SCOUTS
Every year the ZIP-MEETING focuses on a different field within the industry to focus on and provide the time and space for an intensive yet informal networking session. This year we call upon the location managers and scouts from the Baltics. The festival invites the Baltic professionals to share their experience and increase the potential of creating bigger and better international projects with the three Baltic states collaborating.
