Cross Channel Film Lab is a six month (part-time) training programme for professional European writers, writer-directors and producers seeking to explore the use of visual effects and/or Stereo 3D.

The training programme supports filmmakers in obtaining the skills, knowledge and extended networks needed to successfully utilise VFX and/or Stereo 3D technologies in low to medium budget feature films, thus opening new creative possibilities for independent cinema. It explores how storytelling can be impacted by the use of these technologies, affecting development and production.

The core training programme supports 24 filmmakers over six months, with two residential workshops and two virtual consultancy sessions with story and technical consultants. It combines traditional learning (case studies, seminars) with hands-on training, group and individual project mentoring, and peer learning. Online sessions provide an opportunity to revisit past workshop sessions with the wider parallel virtual programme community. The latter offers two programmes of virtual online workshops with live Q&As and interactivity.
