D’A Film Lab Barcelona is an industry programme that aims to promote the internationalization of Spanish emerging talent, facilitating the development and completion of first, second and third feature films. To this end, we have created a full training programme geared towards the producers that are developing these first feature films. 

The fourth edition of the laboratory will take place from April 5 to 8, 2024, within the framework of the D’A – Barcelona Film Festival, with venues at the Center for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB), SGAE Catalonia and Casa Montjuïc, and will have four sections:

  • Final Cut: Eight feature films in the post-production will compete for the D’A Film Lab Barcelona Prize, awarded by a professional jury, worth 20,000 euros.
  • Producció Emergent: Eleven projects in the development.
  • Panorama Catalunya: Catalan-produced and Catalan language projects in post-production.
  • Coproduction Meetings Barcelona: An initiative developed in collaboration with Porto/Post/Doc: Film & Media Festival, with the aim of supporting international co-production, the development of new projects and promoting the circulation of Spanish and Portuguese films and producers.

All projects selected in the laboratory will receive intensive support with international experts, advisors and festival programmers.

In addition, people accredited as professionals at the festival will be able to access open trainings and workshops, and the Lab’s Industry Platform, Incoproduction, which contains information about the projects and gives access to the contact database (Who is who) of the Lab.
