Clinik.Kathmandu concluded its fourth edition of the Writing Lab on the 5th of June at Ehwa in Dhulikhel, Kathmandu. This provided an opportunity for seven filmmakers to participate with their fiction projects who will now be using the Fiction Development program to further develop their projects for a one year period in collaboration with Clinik.Kathmandu.
Unlike previous years, following 2018 all filmmakers participating in the Writing Lab have been given a unique opportunity to continue development in attachment with Clinik for a year under the Fiction Development Programme. The programme will provide further writing support, strategy development assistance, market incubation support and host creative clarity exercises as the project builds further.
All projects will reappear in February 2019 for the Project Build Up lab where they will work on their execution aspects before entering market incubation.
The Writing Lab advisors were Jolein Laarman, Giovanni Robbiano and Kshitiz Adhiraj.
