FIRST Genre Film  Lab is a long-term and non-profit platform dedicated to training feature film directors, relying on the constantly established evaluation system which discovers emerging filmmakers. Together with FIRST Training Camp, Short Film Project, Public Programming Tour, and Volunteer, it combines the production & incubation system.

FIRST Genre Film  Lab was initiated by FIRST International Film Festival. Under the current situation of information block and inequitable resource allocation in the film industry, we try to provide multiple suggestions and training based on the project’s special needs in every stage. The standard of our selection includes the director’s ability and the project’s artistic value. Every year, one to three project will be selected and incubated.
