Abstract

Talent development focusing on motion pictures is increasingly scaffolded through transnational structures and processes. The result is a growing emphasis on what I propose to call the ontological transnationalism of the film practitioner. I begin by identifying transnational talent development as a neglected, yet important area of inquiry for Transnational Cinema Studies and go on to propose a definition of talent development as encompassing more than technical skillsets. A list of parameters is offered for the purpose of capturing the specificity of different approaches to transnational talent development. Of particular interest, I argue, are those models of talent development that have transnational solidarity as a constitutive element. The specific case of Filmlab Palestine is discussed with an eye to foregrounding the promise of solidarity-based transnationalism as it relates to talent development.
