The IIUSFF Talents 2020, organized by Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS), in association with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, will feature a script lab, masterclass, film funds, and pitching session.
All university students from around the world are invited to apply with their short film projects within October 19. The six-day program is dedicated to helping the participants develop the screenplay of their film and prepare the project for pitching and funding.
A significant component of the annual International Inter University Short Film Festival (IIUSFF), IIUSFF Talents is designed to create a hub for young talented student filmmakers to meet with each other, develop their ideas, learn from industry professionals, and get exposed to professional networking to gather support for their future film-making ventures.
This year, because of the ongoing global pandemic situation, the IIUSFF Talents 2020 will be held online from October 25-30.
Expert mentors from different continents of the world will guide the participants through this process via group meetings and one-to-one sessions.
Four Masterclasses will be held during the program. Participants of the script lab are directly registered for the masterclasses. University Students can also participate in the masterclasses via registration.
A mock pitching session will be held on the last day of the IIUSFF Talents 2020. The final pitching session is scheduled to be held on November 20-21 in the presence of producers, investors, funders and industry professionals.
Two filmmaking funds will be given to the best projects of IIUSFF Talents 2020. The funds are supported by Goethe-Institut Bangladesh. For more details, readers can visit the official website of DUFS.
