IFP held it’s Rough Cut Lab for Narrative & Documentary Features June 11 at the SoHo House in New York City. In attendance were BMI Composer David Mansfield, music supervisor Barry Cole, and BMI Vice President, Film/TV Doreen Ringer-Ross who collectively offered insight to students pursuing careers in filmmaking.
IFP Rough Cut Labs for Narrative & Documentary Features works with mentees to complete films prior to festival submission. They support low-budget, independently produced films in the rough assembly stage that can benefit from the mentorship of experienced film professionals.
The four-day program challenges filmmakers to realize the full potential of their footage and stories prior to industry exposure, providing a dynamic system of feedback and advice on technical, creative and post-production issues. The program is specifically geared towards assisting first-time feature filmmakers prior to their submissions to film festivals.
