Three projects have advanced to the second round of the Venice Film Festival's Biennale College-Cinema program. This second phase consists of a workshop in which the participants will actually make a mini-budget film; each will get 150,000 euro in funding.

The three projects were chosen at the end of a 10-day workshop held in January, in which 15 groups participated, each comprised of a director and producer. The initial group of 15 represented 12 countries from around the world.

The goal of the program is to present the three feature-length films at the 70th International Venice Film Festival (August 28 - September 7, 2013). 

The three projects are:

  • "Memphis" (USA), director Tim Sutton and producer John Baker
  • "The Year of June" (Thailand), director Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit and producer Aditya Assarat
  • "Yuri Esposito" (Italy), director Alessio Fava and producer Max Chicco
