Work in progress – meeting of producers and film-makers

October 5, 2019, 3 Pm, Zerogloss / Exworks

This meeting was conceived to facilitate the growth of audiovisual works on the theme of work as they are still being developed. The goal of Work in progress is triggering new synergies between the authors that have been selected by open call, and who have the opportunity to show their projects “in progress”, and the producers who have been invited to offer their opinion and their experience, also presenting their own case studies.
