The tenth edition of BrLab – development of audiovisual projects will take place on November 5-27, 2020, with its programme mostly online as a security measure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, considering the necessary participation of professionals from different countries that distinguish our programme and activities.


In this edition, ten (10) projects will be selected and, together, will participate in activities focused on the development of fiction feature films from Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula (plus Italy, according to the Ibermedia Program’s criteria) and on the qualification of audiovisual sector professionals from these regions.
