B3 TalentLab - DEADLINE EXTENSION!
We’ve extended the deadline for submissions to this year’s TALENTLAB until 12pm Monday 25 September 2017.
Are you an artist with vision, tenacity, passion, and compelling stories?
We’re looking for bold, fresh and non-traditional ideas and narratives to join our 2017 programme.
What is B3 TalentLab?
TalentLab is a bespoke talent development programme aimed at Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) creatives working in the fields of film and across multiple platforms (digital storytelling, photography, theatre, spoken word, music and dance). TalentLab aims to reach writers, directors, creative producers, artists, digital artists and media creators, helping them to re-assess their professional practice, improve their skills, and give them the confidence and contacts to push their careers and projects to the next level. We want to help develop YOU as a creative talent, and YOUR PROJECT as a proposition.
What are we looking for?
We seek up to 20 individuals with digital art, cross platform and film: shorts to features (fiction and documentary) ideas to participate in a series of development labs in November from which up to 12 projects will be selected for further development and up to 6 will be given a development commission of up to £1000. You will also get an opportunity to present your project to funders at our B3 Futures industry showcase at Picturehouse Central (London) in February 2018.
TalentLab alumni have gone on to have their work shown at leading festivals such as Cannes, Sundance and London Film Festival; received BAFTA nominations; won prestigious awards and prizes for writing and theatre; and exhibited or presented work at leading venues.
How do I apply?
You can apply as a writer, director, writer/director, artist, creative producer, or digital artist.
Complete and submit an online application by Monday 25th September 2017 at: www.b3media.net/talentlab.
TalentLab is supported by Creative Skillset¹s Film Skills Fund, with BFI¹s Film Forever National Lottery funds, the University of Nottingham¹s Horizon/ Mixed Reality and Picturehouse Cinemas.
