The programme
LIM I Less is more is a training programme dedicated to script development for 1st to 3rd feature film projects. The training aims at boosting the script development phase and at strengthening the filmmakers’ ability to accelerate and deepen the writing process, starting from an early stage. LIM’s objectives are to find new ways of storytelling, to create a common language, and tools for writers and development professionals to cooperate transnationally.

The LIM training programme includes three one-week workshops between March and October 2023 as well as a tailormade showcase event to benefit from the inputs of industry professionals coming from all over Europe.

16 filmmakers wanting to develop a feature fiction film project are selected from all over the world. LIM welcomes writers/directors, as well as talents coming from virtual arts, theatre, documentary and web video creators. They apply with a project at an early stage of development.
Due to FOCAL’s cooperation, two seats are reserved for Swiss filmmakers in LIM preselection in 2023. 1 seat will be reserved for a Swiss filmmaker to participate at the LIM main programme 2023.
