Script Development Workshop & Pitching Competition In partnership with Torino Film Lab

Submission Deadline: 20 September 2016

TIFForum will be a 3-day intensive workshop for the script development of 8 first or second feature film projects, consisting of individual consultations, practical writing exercises, and lectures.

It will be a crash course in collaboration between trainers & participants. The process will be intensive and demanding for all involved. It aims to be a unique, high value professional experience for the participating filmmakers.

During the 3 days of the workshop, each of the 2 trainers in script development will guide, and collaborate with, a group of 4 projects/filmmakers, forming a sort of creative family. Trainers and trainees will be working together in planned meetings (individual and group ones), but they will also be expected to be constantly “on call”, available to offer feedback to each other, each single day, from breakfast through dinner, through a series of additional, unexpected meetings moderated by the trainer/group leader, depending on the specific needs of each script of the group, at any given time.

Participants will be expected to live up to the challenge of engaging in a professional dialogue with experienced trainers as per the needs of their particular stories. They will be required to make the most out of the feedback they will receive. Produce results. Discover the originality in their projects as well as a strategy to build upon it, and fully develop their stories’ dramatic potential.

Coinciding with the Tirana International Film Festival 2016, the workshop will also produce training and networking synergies.

After 3-day script development, the projects will work on their pitch with a trainer in the following 2 days.  On the last day every participant will pitch his project and compete for the Best Pitch Award.
