Rotterdam Lab 2021.jpg


The 23rd edition of the Rotterdam Lab will take place from Monday, January 25, 2023 to Friday, February 3, 2023. The acclaimed Rotterdam Lab provides invaluable training workshops to up and coming producers. With producers from all over the world attending the sessions, this will be an opportunity to connect with the international film industry, network with other emerging producers, and to develop a project.

JAFTA and JAMPRO have partnered with the International Film Festival of Rotterdam (IFFR) in the Netherlands to select and send one (1) emerging Jamaican producer to the 2022 Rotterdam Lab. JAFTA will manage and oversee the call and shortlist selection and developmental process and JAMPRO will provide financial sponsorship for attendance. Both JAFTA and JAMPRO will provide in-kind support to the selected participant before and at the Lab. 

What are we looking for?

We are looking for one (1) emerging producer from Jamaica to take part. This could either be an independent producer with or without their own companies, or a junior producer working for a production company. Applicants should have produced at least one short film, and no more than two feature films. They should also have the ambition to either co-produce or work internationally.

 The selected candidate will participate in pitching and Business-to-Business sessions and will learn about a variety of topics including:

  • New developments in the international industry

  • The logistics of international co- production

  • Sales and distribution

  • Funding and development
