22 Jan IEFTA Selects Producer to attend IFFR’s Virtual Rotterdam Lab
When Daniela Repas, a Bosnian filmmaker won a Princess Grace award in 2019, IEFTA was there to celebrate her achievement and support her vision with our own mentorship award. We got to meet Jessica Daugherty, an acclaimed documentary filmmaker in her own right, who had begun collaborating with Daniela on a new animated project.
In 2021, Jessica earned our nomination to attend the IFFR Rotterdam Lab, January 26th through February 6th. The IFFR Lab is a training workshop for producers that offers “emerging international professionals the means to build and develop their network.”
