Directors Michelangelo Frammartino and Leonardo Di Costanzo will be on the jury.

The MFN L'Atelier is the first support fund for Italian feature films in post-production, set up in order to facilitate access to the market and the international festival circuit.In 2017, MFN launched a new partnership with When East Meets West and Trieste Film Festival, along with a collaboration with This is IT, a new section devoted exclusively to fiction features. One of the finalist projects from the MFN L'Atelier will be selected by WEMW and TSFF and presented to This is IT in January 2018. From the 45 post-production films in the bidding, MFN will select five finalists who will present their rough cut to a professional industry audience and compete to win a post-production award. The president of the jury this year is Carlo Chatrian, artistic director of Locarno Festival.

In recent editions, films promoted and backed by L'Atelier have gone on to have careers in international festivals as well as distribution proposals. In the first edition of Atelier 2015, MFN supported films which went on to be selected at Venice (Spira Mirabilis [+see also:
