ESCAC opens the call for the Ópera Prima Laboratory


Until April 30

The Ópera Prima Laboratory is an ESCAC program to develop the first feature film project, series, or product of new audiovisual formats, whether documentary or fiction, to be exploited industrially.


ESCAC selects seven projects annually. ESCAC promotes the development of the projects until a solid proposal is achieved, with narrative and exploitation value, designed for a global market for different formats, audiences, and contents. The laboratory includes training workshops, professional tutorials, specialized seminars, the production of audiovisual materials (an audiovisual piece will be shot, be it a trailer, teaser, or project scene), and various presentations to the industry. Each project will have an economic endowment of up to 15,000 euros.

The deadline for submitting projects is April 30. You can consult the bases and all the information about the program here.
