16 exceptional voices of filmmakers + 12 Development angels from Europe and beyond
LIM | Less is More is a training and coaching programme supported by Creative Europe, dedicated to script development for 1st to 3rd feature film projects. Each year 16 Feature Film projects from all over the world are selected to boost their script development phase and to strengthen their ability to accelerate and deepen the writing process, starting from early stage. Propelled by Le Groupe Ouest’s methodological approach (winner of the two main awards in Sundance 2020) and by a very intense eight months process, LIM’s approach is built around the idea that the introduction of self-imposed limitations early in the writing process can generate an incredible creativity accelerator for filmmakers!
After only three editions, LIM’s approach proves to be efficient. Six very exciting films have been already shot and twelve are in pre-production, some of them about to be shot in the next weeks (Wolf, by Nathalie Bianchieri starting in a few days with Georges MacKay and Lily Rose Depp as main actors). Since 2019, LIM’s team also selects every year twelve Development angels to take part in LIM. In each of the three major workshops of LIM, four of these Rising Creative producers or development professionals are integrated in the development process inside the groups of writers. Under the guidance of LIM’s tutors/script-consultants, they are trained to new development techniques involving intense use of orality, video and creative development brainstorming.
The selection for LIM2020 has been even more complicated than past years, because of the raising quality of the projects submitted (460 applications from 80 countries in total). But what remains is sixteen exceptional voices of filmmakers and twelve Development angels from all over the world, that might become the voices we need to hear! Mixing filmmakers with a track-record and newcomers, LIM2020 selection displays an amazing variety of very intense filmmakers and human beings.
