On June 1st, the B3 Biennial of the Moving Image and HessenFilm & Medien GmbH will launch a worldwide call for entries for HessenLab – an international training and mentoring program aimed at young professionals. The program is looking for outstanding projects and ideas in the fields of film, art, VR/XR and games.
After the call closes on 15 July 2021, a jury of experts will choose 25 international young professionals and their audiovisual project ideas. From 16 to 19 October 2021, these winners will be invited to an online mentoring and conference program.
All mentors are renowned professionals from the audiovisual creative industries. Internationally established funders, financiers and professionals from the media and creative industries will participate in the conference program teaching master classes, workshops, hosting think tanks, one-on-one meetings and networking events.
HessenLab, with its training and mentoring program, is part of the newly developed B3 Talent Forum which aims to foster long-term ties between professionals from the various media and creative industries on one side and emerging talent on the other side. It also aims to promote international exchange.
