Lo schermo dell’arte Film Festival

Manchester’s brand new cross-art centre and Italy’s unique artist film festival unite to present the ground-breaking first European intensive training programme for visual artists developing and producing their first feature film.

Spanning six months and two locations, the program combines masterclasses, case studies, workshops, screenings, one-to-one meetings and pitching sessions for directors who are developing their first feature film.

Participants will gain essential new skills and the expertise needed to advance their early stage feature film projects for theatrical distribution and exhibition.

Professor Sarah Perks, Co-Director of Feature Expanded, said:

"Feature Expanded is the first course aimed specifically at the development of feature films by visual artists. This wouldn't have happened without the innovative approach by Creative Europe to fund and support this initiative. The response to Feature Expanded from industry, artists, press and academics has all been incredibly positive, and we are really proud that all of the first year's artists are still developing their films. It's also important that this is a major collaboration between two key non-capital cities, with additional partnerships with University of Salford, Nederland Filmfonds, Creative Scotland and Toscana Film Commission."
