FIND has unveiled the eight 2010 Directors Lab film-makers ahead of the nine-week talent programme.

The eight film-makers and their projects are: Dish by Brian Harris Krinsky; El Flaco by Jeff Seymann Gilbert; Iram Parveen Bilal’s Forbidden Steps; and Grievous Angel from Jessica Hundley.

Saigon/24 by Huy Chau; Sarah N_12 by Sasie Sealy; The Prettiest Girl by Sasha Isaac-Young; and Things We’ve Made by Trevin Matcek.

Catherine Hardwicke, Rodrigo Garcia and Keith Gordon are among the mentors for the upcoming 9th annual Directors Lab.

The nine-week incubator offers on-site training for budding film-makers on how to work with actors, collaborate with cinematographers and crew, refine scripts and shoot scenes from their projects. 

They are also introduced to established directors and film professionals who serve as one-on-one advisors throughout the training.

The Lab is provided free to accepted film-makers, who become Film Independent Fellows upon completion and receive year-round support.
