Biennale College is an innovative and complex experience that gathers all the Sectors of the Biennale di Venezia, promoting young talents and offering them the opportunity to work directly in contact with the masters, to develop their “creations”.

The Biennale College – Cinema is a higher educational workshop for the development and production of micro-budget audiovisual works, launched at the 69th Venice International Film Festival 2012. At the close of an international call for participation, the initial submission counted 433 projects from 77 countries from around the world. 15 of these projects were selected, and their teams (one director and one producer) participated in the first workshop in Venice from January 7th through 17th 2013.

The Biennale College – Cinema is a programme organized by the Biennale di Venezia in partnership with Gucci. It is supported by the Ministry for the Cultural Heritage and Activities – General Direction Cinema – and by the Regione del Veneto, and held in collaboration with the New York IFP, the Dubai International Film Festival and TorinoFilmLab.

The second workshop of the Biennale College – Cinema for the 3 selected teams (composed this time of a maximum of 5 people) will be held from February 18th through March 6th 2013 in Venice. This will be an intensive workshop dedicated to direction and pre-production, which will explore the visual aspects of the 3 projects. Each team will work with a mentor-director and a certain number of tutors/trainers for each different area, to ensure that at the end of the workshop the teams are ready to start, to shoot and to edit the film over the next five months, under the supervision of a team from the Biennale College – Cinema.
An area on the Biennale website, www.labiennale.org, dedicated to reporting on the activities of the Biennale College – Cinema, will follow the phases of production for the 3 projects admitted to the second phase and post all the 15 teams selected for the first phase online.

The 12 projects that will not participate in the second workshop may benefit in any case from an online follow-up, and opportunities may open up for them to find co-producers in collaboration with the New York IFP, with the Dubai International Film Festival and with the TorinoFilmLab.
