TalentX is an intensive residential workshop for professional ‘film talent developers’ – people who work to support and nurture writers, producers and directors. The 3-day programme aims to build, share and strengthen best practice in talent development, explore and compare approaches, and enable an improved dialogue around talent progression routes across EU countries.
Participants will be actively exploring what writers and directors really want from development, successful strategies for moving talent into first, second and third features, the role of producers in bringing on talent and different international models for the development of people and projects.
The programme is structured around five key themes:
Shorts to Features: Key Steps
Talent ‘Ladder’ or ‘Climbing Wall’?
Labs, Programmes, Models: How Do They Compare?
What is the Role of Producers in Developing Talent?
Bringing in the Market – Audience vs. Tastemakers
