We focus on strengthening the universality and personal voice of each project, by entering a close and intense dialogue with each writer and writer-director.
Script&Pitch is an advanced international scriptwriting and script development workshop aimed at writers and story editors who wish to advance and sharpen their professional skills within the field of storytelling. For this year’s edition we selected 15 writers and 5 story editor trainees from 16 countries from all around the world, who over the course of 11 months have participated in our 3 workshops, sharing and pitching their stories to not only their own groups, but also across groups, including participants from our partner Le Groupe Ouest in Brittany.
We focus on strengthening the universality and personal voice of each project, by entering a close and intense dialogue with each writer and writer-director. The training and script development process culminates at the TorinoFilmLab Meeting Event, which enables the crucial networking part of the course, widening the projects’ possibilities to seek international production and co-production opportunities, through a public Pitch and one-to-one meetings with invited decision makers.
2010 marks the 5th edition of Script&Pitch that by now has consolidated its presence in the panorama of European and International training institutions. Becoming a part of TorinoFilmLab (now in the 3rd year of its existence) supports the inherent design of Script&Pitch to nurture talents and accompany them throughout their journey of development towards the realization and production of their films. Being the first step on a long road, it allows some of the participating projects by 1st or 2nd time directors to win a Development Award at the Meeting Event, which will gain them access to being a part of the TorinoFilmLab development workshops and potentially win a Production Award the year after.
At Script&Pitch we also intend to create a vibrant network and strengthen our ties to the film industry, therefore we are constantly developing connections with festivals and industry-events, seeking producers and partners who wish to invest their time in writers, their talent and the development process. We are also very fond of our annual Alumni Meeting, an additional chance for people to rejoin and broaden their ties among each other and within the film community.
