Every year TorinoFilmLab offers Script&Pitch, an advanced script development course for scriptwriters and directors of feature films from all over the world. The programme, supported by the Creative Europe - MEDIA Sub-programme of the European Union, is realized with the support of Flanders Audiovisual Fund and Le Groupe Ouest, and in partnership with NISI MASA.
Open to 12 projects from all over the world, the course lasts 9 months - from March to November 2016, and foresees 3 residential workshops and 2 on-line sessions. It follows the entire scriptwriting process, offering close collaboration and insights into the challenges of each step, from generating ideas and structuring the material through first and second drafts, up to a final pitch in front of the Decision Makers invited to the TorinoFilmLab Meeting Event in November 2016, during the Torino Film Festival.

The selected Script&Pitch projects will have the possibility to apply to the TorinoFilmLab FrameWork programme in 2017, provided they fulfill the conditions of eligibility.
In addition to the 12 projects, 3 story editor trainees will be selected to join the workshop process, thereby completing the Script&Pitch team. Story Editing training deadline for applications: December 1st, 2015.
Who can apply?
Script&Pitch is open to professional scriptwriters and writer-directors from all over the world. Many participants already work together with a production company. However, it is not necessary to have a producer attached to the project.
Applicants must confirm their availability for the workshops and the final pitch. The working language of all Script&Pitch workshops, meetings and events is English.
Workshops & on-line sessions
Three intensive weeklong workshops and two on-line sessions keep the project development in a constructive flow. Participants work in groups of four writers and a story editor trainee, with a tutor heading the process. The course includes lectures, talks and one-to-one meetings with industry professionals. The tool of pitching one΄s project to others will be used throughout the course in various ways, for example in the form of a video pitch.
