As an emerging producer of (mostly) comedy short films, LOCO has been instrumental for me, both as a launchpad for films that were struggling in more traditional festivals, and as a way of meeting new peers and talent. I have met most of the filmmakers I am working with right now (or hoping to work with in the future) at LOCO Filmmakers Brunches or during the fantastic courses”  – Chiara Ventura, producer

A day’s programme of workshops, panels and networking curated for those looking to build their skills in producing comedy.
