MIZERIA, directed by Evan Michon and produced by Karen Harnisch, was selected for the TFL’s 2019 FeatureLab training programme. The Canadian-Polish co-production is the feature debut for Michon and is being produced through Film Forge and Opus Films.
This year’s line-up has a focus on diversity and links to local culture, according to Vincenzo Bugno and Violeta Bava, curator and head of studies at the TFL.
The FeatureLab will include two residential workshops (in June and in September) during which the participants will work on the various stages of production and filmmaking, from scripting to direction to sound design, financing and audience engagement strategies, alongside international consultants.
The training will conclude with the annual TFL Meeting Event in November, where the filmmakers will present their projects to an industry audience.
