About APostLab

Amsterdam Post Lab offers programs with the aim to increase understanding and appreciation of post-production. For more than a decade APostLab has provided professionals with the knowledge and skills to manage the post-production of international feature films and series. Whether working on international art house documentaries, feature films, or delivering a series to an international streamer; APostLab offers producers and professionals the knowledge, skills and network needed to succeed.

About the Annual Workshop

The Annual Workshop is a 6-day, residential, project-based programme involving plenary sessions, group work, and individual consultation. During this intensive workshop, participants get a better understanding of the technical, financial, and creative aspects of post-production in an international production environment.

Participants work closely together in teams, designing a workflow, a schedule and a budget for the producers’ project and are assisted by internationally acclaimed industry professionals.

Participant teams will be assigned into groups, each of which will be assigned two group leaders; a producer and a post-production supervisor. The group leaders of our 13th Annual Workshop are producers Roshanak Behesht Nedjad (Germany), Antoine Simkine (France), and freelance post-production supervisors Niko Remus (Germany) and Neeltje van der Heijden (The Netherlands).

The workshop is conducted in English and accommodates 22 participants.
