Storylines Lab – Open Call

Cine Qua Non Lab is a nonprofit organization based in Morelia, Mexico, and New York City, founded in 2010 with the mission of supporting independent cinema by providing a space for filmmakers to envision and develop their work. Cine Qua Non Lab focuses on storytelling and holds residential workshops in English and Spanish in Tzintzuntzan, a small town in the State of Michoacán, Mexico, in a quiet natural retreat overlooking Lake Pátzcuaro, giving independent filmmakers from around the world the opportunity to work intensively on their feature-length narrative scripts.

Storylines is an online lab designed for narrative feature film projects from early concept to treatment stage. The lab has a duration of ten days, with a two-day follow-up session, and has two editions: one in English and one in Spanish.

Storylines aims to give independent filmmakers from around the world the opportunity to work intensively on the creative development of their projects in an environment structured to foster professional collaboration and high-quality project development.
