Second edition kicks off!

At Le Groupe Ouest’s home village, Plounéour-Brignogan-Plages, the second edition of LIM | Less is More – the European development programme for limited budget feature films, has just welcomed its selected filmmakers, writers and producers for 2018.

19 filmmakers from 15 countries and 10 producers and story editors from 9 countries will be coached by 5 tutors, Marcel Beaulieu (Canada), Pierre Hodgson (UK), Miguel Machalski (Argentina), Monica Rattazzi (Italy, Morocco), and Antoine Le Bos (France), during this one year programme dedicated to low budget screenwriting and project development. The group of script development tutors will be completed in the next workshops by low budget specialists (line-producers, 1st AD, continuity…).

LIM team has developped a unique approach, using budget limitations as a trigger for more in-depth storytelling and creative filmmaking, using Orson Welles’ words as a motto:

« The enemy of art is the absence of limitations »

LIM | Less is More is divided into 3 stages of residency, 3 one week workshops, organised in three different parts of Europe, away from big cities: workshop 1 in Brittany, France (March 8 to 13), workshop 2 in Transilvania, Romania (June), including an Industry event in Cluj-Napoca (TIFF) and workshop 3 in Malopolska, Poland (October).

During this first workshop, the focus for all partipants will be put on finding the very core and soul of each film project, as well as defining the pillars of its narrative strategy.
