At the end of 2015 the Council of Europe’s Eurimages Fund joined forces with four European festivals to establish the "Eurimages Lab Project Award" for innovative projects exploring new forms of expression, as from 2016.

This prize, amounting to €50,000, was awarded by the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, the Norwegian International Film Festival Haugesund, the Thessaloniki International Film Festival and the European Film Festival des Arcs within the framework of their “Works in Progress” events.

To be eligible, projects had to be mainly produced in a Eurimages member state, participate in one of the above events and show co-operation between at least two countries.

During its strategic meeting in October 2019, Eurimages Board of Management decided to suspend, as from January 2021, support for lab projets in its current form and to launch an independant study on the relevance and modalities of support for non-conventional cinematographic projects. Following a market consultation launched in September 2020, this study on the feasibility pertinence and design of a Lab Projects support programme for the Eurimages Fund has been entrusted to the structure Tatino Films (FR).

You can read the final report of this study which was presented to the Board of Management at its plenary meeting on 19 March 2021 in full or in summary.
