TorinoFilmLab is to mark its 15th edition by showcasing a selection of titles that have successfully been developed at the training, networking and development event.

The TFL Film Parade will share a selection of seven titles chosen among over 150 films developed within the TFL’s development programmes.

The films – which all went on to premiere at A-list festivals - will be released online and accessible for free to anyone who registers on TFL’s long-term partner-platform Festival Scope, in the original language with English subtitles.

Each title will be available in an average of 10 countries for up to 500 views. They will be available to watch for seven days from November 7-13.

The films include Omar El Zohairy’s Feathers, winner of the 2021 Nespresso prize in Cannes’ Critics’ Week, and Marcelo Martinessi Heiresses, a 2018 Berlinale Silver Bear winner.

The 15th edition of the TFL Meeting Event takes place from November 24-26th in Turin.

Created in 2008, TorinoFilmLab is organised by the National Museum of Cinema and supported by Creative Europe - MEDIA sub-programme of the European Union, Ministero della Cultura, Regione Piemonte and Città di Torino.
