Since the up-and-coming International Film Festival 2007, winners and filmtalents of the International Competition have been invited to a masterclassfilm.
In this masterclassfilm these international film makers are presented online with their biographies and films. They are also invited to events aimed to encourage the dialogue in the up-and-coming network.
This ensures the continual support of film talents.
For the award winners of the festivals in 2013 and 2015, these events took place:
The up-and-coming FilmDialog with workshops on crowd funding and pitching, a forum for the current activities of these young talents, and introductory meetings with producers and promoters of the film business.
The International Short Film Lab — shooting leibniz! was a project with a ten-day production phase and involved teams of German film students. Five short films about the Hannover philosopher Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz resulted.
Further events are planned.
