TIFF – Industry is open for talents from Romania and Moldova and is gathering Transilvania Talent Lab (TTL) – the hands-on programme dedicated to emerging talents, and Transilvania Pitch Stop (TPS) – a tailor made workshop for feature fiction films wrapping up with a public presentation and one to one meetings. TIFF – Industry hosts a series of masterclasses, lining-up experts in audience development, and script writing, film directors, documentarist and personalities. TIFF Industry also means closed screenings for industry members and special screenings of the newest Romanian films, in the presence of their filmmakers.Therefore hosting one LIM working workshop and the only live meeting experience between LIM participants and industry professionals from around the world brings a large benefit to the entire project and its participants.
