VOICES OF HESSENLAB PARTICIPANTS 2021

“The mentoring helped me navigate the project on to the direction that I want to go to, whilst exploring so much creative ideas that I could have never thought of that would fit the project so well.”

“My favourite part of the programme were the opportunities to have live interaction with speaker mentors covering a diverse range of topics, such as: technical innovations within our industry, maximizing social media strategy, legal advice for the film and arts industry, etc.”

“The lectures are an ideal way to update your knowledge and glance into what is happening nowadays in the industry.”

“The experience with the tutor, the talks and sharing and networking with people from other countries and different projects broadens the horizons of knowledge and opens relationships between artists.”
