Projects in different stages of development and production (from early script to post-production stage) can apply for the creative development part (HFM Lab) of the Holland Film Meeting.

The programme will start ahead of the actual film festival and the HFM Market days, and its duration and focus are different depending on the scheme the project has been selected for: New Dutch, BoostNL or Stories & Beyond. It consists of several plenary and training sessions during August and September geared towards your project’s creative deepening and marketplace potential.

The official language of the HFM is English, therefore the application and all the required materials must be submitted in English.
Please note that the submissions for 2022 are closed.
