First Cut Lab Netherlands was a consultancy program designed for two feature films in editing phase that have received selective support by the Netherlands Film Fund.
The selected teams (director/producer/editor) were offered a creative framework, both benevolent & challenging, where to open up and to explore new artistic perspectives for their films.
They screened their full rough cut in a private session and received expert feedback on their edit from international film advisers, as well as tailor-made advice from consultant editors. The discussions were moderated by editorial consultant Wim Vanacker.
Advisers chosen were:
Angela Prudenzi (Italy) – Journalist & Film Critic
Consultant editors from First Cut Lab chosen were:
Maya Maffioli (United Kingdom – Italy)
Matthieu Taponier (France – United Stated)
The Lab took place online in March and April 2021, and was financially supported by the Netherlands Film Fund.
