Masterclass with Antoine Le Bos, Artistic Director of LIM plus guests

In this Masterclass, Antoine Le Bos (Artistic Director of Le Groupe Ouest and LIM – Less is more, European Film Labs) will delve into the script development process and how limitations can actually enhance creativity. He will look at the difference between conception and writing phases, and investigate methodological tools to boost the creative process, as well as present how prewriting is key.

Nathalie Biancheri and Simao Cayatte, previous LIM alumni and prewriting tutors will share their experiences and answer questions from their perspectives.

This session is suitable for writers, directors, producers, industry professionals and film students.

About LIM:

LIM | Less is More is the European feature film development program for committed filmmakers in a changing world.

At the heart of this adventure, there is the fundamental idea that using the concept of limitation is not only a matter of budget, but becomes a necessity both to enhance creativity and to rethink how independent cinema is conceived in a time of deep ecological and political concern. 

 In 2022 sixteen filmmakers will be selected to develop their 1st, 2nd or 3rd feature film project. The LIM programme includes three one-week workshops between March and October 2022, as well as a tailor-made Showcase Event to benefit from the inputs of industry professionals coming from all over Europe.
