BrLab is an annual workshop dedicated to future Latin American and European films undergoing development stages and to the training of professionals in the audiovisual sector. Currently, it is the only market event in Brazil that receives projects from all over Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula (and Italy).

During the laboratory, film producers, directors and screenwriters representing the twelve selected projects receive comprehensive advice on fundamental pillars of development for their products: screenwriting, direction, production and distribution. The workshop has an important history of successful films released in Brazil and abroad and has consolidated itself in recent years as an international reference in the film industry.

The 10th edition of BrLab takes place on November 5-27, 2020, with a fully online programming as a security measure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, given that the participation of professionals from different countries in our programming and activities is essential.
