The Cross Channel Film Lab aims to redefine the use of VFX, Stereo 3D and narrative in low to medium budget feature films.  The Lab has offered a feature film development training scheme linked to in-depth research.

From 2012 to 2014, we delivered an R&D project that developed eight feature film projects alongside new technology, linking eleven diverse partners in the UK and France.

Read about the projects we have supported so far over here, and browse through some of our web documentaries, open sessions and research under resources.

From 2015 to 2016, the Lab continued to support the development of brave, original and imaginative feature films that innovate in their use of Stereo 3D and/or VFX at a low to medium budgets through our Cross Channel Film Lab Training programme.  The 2016 core and online programmes for filmmaker participants have been completed and we are taking a break in 2017.

Our aim is to enliven European storytelling and extend the international audience for European cinema, fostering new partnerships and sharing the lessons we learn as we bring technology and screenwriting together at an early stage.
