The Masterplan Filmtalent is a four-year project in which young filmmakers realise a number of short films with experienced professionals. Each year, the Masterplan will help new batch of students or recent graduates to make three short films. The selected talents collaborate with professionals from the Dutch and Belgian film industry, allowing them to gain valuable experience for a future career in the film profession.
