Attagirl Lab is open for applications from gender diverse filmmakers looking to finance their films. For Film’s Sake’s women-focussed film lab will return in 2022, following the success of its first year supporting women in financing their feature film productions. Applying is free, and applications are open until 22 August.

Initially imagined as a travel program to international market-driven film festivals, Attagirl is a lab that has helped support gender diverse filmmakers with a course that covered the three pillars of film production development: story, market and audience. On top of this, participating teams gained access to international markets, through digital access to Toronto International Film Festival and International Film Festival Rotterdam. These teams are currently preparing for their final workshop through SFF, where they will pitch to potential financiers across the public, private and philanthropic sectors.
