LIM starts out on its 2020 journey at the Hotel Wolski, located in Lasek Wolski Forest. In the forest are many scenic walks – in Sowiniec Hill with the Piłsudski Mound, the baroque Camaldolese Monastery atop Srebrna Góra (the Silver Mountain), the zoological garden, three rocky nature reserves… – so participants will be able to enjoy strolls. The purpose of this first workshop is clear for the filmmakers: to find the core of each project, both thematically and narratively. It will be a search for the power driving each story as well as revealing the subconscious interrogation lying at its heart.

For a whole week, the team and participants set up camp in a small village on Brittany’s rocky northern coast – the home of Le Groupe Ouest – in what used to be a farm in the heart of the countryside, a few hundred meters from the ocean. LIM’s team and participants enter phase 2 of their work: the deep digging. Combining feedback from professionals and following the path of the first rewrites in between the first two workshops, the goal is to establish a bone structure for the script while integrating the creative trigger of budget limitations.

For a whole week, the team and participants set up camp in the Lithuanian countryside, in the woods, next to Vilnius. Here, with a broader coalition of combined groups and consultants, the projects enter the final stage of development. The purpose is to finalise a strong treatment or a first draft if possible. This is about raising the right questions and finding the right answers, finding doors and windows, connecting the need for limitations to enhance a powerful story.
