The first edition of LIM – Less Is More, the European platform for project development of limited budget feature films, steps into its next stage, with two important events, both organised in Romania: the second LIM workshop and the public presentation of the 16 selected projects, in front of specialised audience, during the Transilvania International Film Festival (TIFF).

LIM – Less is More is divided into 3 stages of residency, 3 one week workshops, organised in three European countries: Workshop 1 in Flemish Belgium (March 5 to 11), Workshop 2 in Transylvania, Romania (June 6 to 14) and Workshop 3 in Brittany, France (October 1 to 8). The script development process is coordinated by 4 experienced script consultants (screenwriters, themselves): Leonardo Stagliano (Italy), Pierre Hogdson (UK, France), Marcel Beaulieu (Canada) and Antoine Le Bos (France). The group of tutors will be completed by low and micro budget specialists.

LIM Workshop 2 will welcome the 21 participants in Baisorii Mountain Resort, in a special location, isolated from the world and the craziness of the big cities – Hotel Alpin Baisoara. The LIM group will go deep in working on their stories during the second training workshop offered by the LIM experts and will continue to dig in the narrative structures of their low budget film projects. The participants will have the chance to digest the feedback received during the first workshop, as well as during the rewriting sessions, which have happened since March. The purpose of the second LIM workshop is to find the basic structure of the stories and to creatively the budget limitations within their scripts.

The second LIM Workshop also includes a special event organized in Cluj-Napoca, during the Transilvania International Film Festival (TIFF). On June 10, the participants will have the chance to present their projects in front of producers and film professionals present in Cluj, during the special Industry Programme Days at TIFF. One of the purposes of LIM is to generate the creation of a European network made of professionals working with the limitations of low budget cinema and to then generate co-productions and new ways of financing and distribution.
