Less is More 2021: “Wake Up call! Line-up revealed

Despite the complicated times filmmakers are going through, LIM | Less is More, the European development programme for limited budget feature films, received a pretty consistent amount of strong feature film projects from all over the world (around 350 applications from more than 70 countries). And even new countries applied: Armenia, Burkina Faso, Bolivia, South Korea, Mali, Peru, Uganda, Uruguay, etc.
Massimiliano Nardulli, LIM’s Head of Talent, is relieved: “The context being so heavily troubled, we were afraid the writers would be affected in the way they project themselves with new projects. But it’s not the case. LIM's goal, today more than ever, is to highlight projects with a quest for human substance in a disturbed landscape, projects powered by a strong quest for meaning. And it seems the sixteen projects selected this year, first as well as second feature films, are a very consistent display of how a new generation of filmmakers grab the world with full hands.
As if the context of so many confinements also creates a kind of wake up call”, continues Antoine Le Bos, LIM’s Artistic Director. “During last year’s workshops, some of the projects had to gather a new momentum, couldn’t keep on talking about our world in the same manner. Very clearly today, you can’t write films thinking the world revolves around yourself. You have to talk to humans, trapped on the same boat. It has become urgent!”.

This year, the selection is overwhelmingly dominated by women filmmakers. Sign of the changing times, 10 projects out of 16 are carried by women! And among the new countries selected: South Africa, Czech Republic, Vietnam and Uganda give a new taste to LIM2021.
Another specificity of 2021 is the variety of cinematographic styles and approaches selected, including people coming from a strong background in Theatre, Visual Arts or Documentary. We will be taken close to the polar circle with the Sámi of Norway, in the heart of a Gipsy community in Romania, or with a Pokot tribe in Kenya. We will be discovering a cult in Czech Republic, sex addiction in Lithuania, or Celtic fables in Brittany. From Scotland to Poland and Macedonia, or from Denmark to Vietnam and Portugal, we will experience love triangles, Baroque eroticism and troubled bodies.

In the same movement, LIM has selected 12 Development angels that will be taking part in the adventure. From Brazil to Latvia, and from Ukraine to Wales, a very exciting selection of creative producers, development execs or film professionals about to become Script Consultants will be coached in their approach of story-editing, working side by side with the tutors, as well as receiving dedicated training.
