The lab is a project-based intensive workshop for international filmmakers working on their first or second feature. Participants from seven selected projects will attend a four-day programme (31st August - 3rd September 2019) in London that will include talks, workshops and one-to-one mentoring.


During the programme, one of the seven projects selected for Assembly will be awarded £10,000 in development funding for their feature film, following a closed pitch.


The projects selected for Assembly 2019 are:
