The festival this year includes the return of The Attic Lab. The festival’s intensive mentoring program for women genre filmmakers, the lab is run by the festival in collaboration with guest mentors.
Featuring eleven invited participants, the lab is designed for filmmakers developing or pitching feature length projects. It takes its name from the archetype of the ‘Madwoman in the Attic’, suggesting a place where violent and disruptive female impulses are hidden away, and yet grow more powerful.
The filmmakers will pitch new genre feature projects (at varying stages of development).
Drinks afterwards are to encourage informal feedback.
“It was quite something to hear the pitches on the night. One after another, they all felt…viable. Incredible.”
—Rolf de Heer, attending the Attic Lab Pitch in 2016
