As we aim to scout new voices, applicants must have a strong background in scriptwriting, but not especially in writing for Television. The application is open for international writers, with proven credit on at least one feature film (produced or in production).

The programme is also addressed to writers with credit on series projects, who want to strengthen their skills in development strategies, collaboration, roles and responsibilities in a writers’ room, or to writers who wish to gain more experience working as assigned writers.

With this programme, we would like to offer a training experience for writers with different backgrounds and nationalities, by a collective and collaborative process of sharing, exchanging, and getting inspired by each other personal and professional stories.


The requested materials – to be submitted all together in one PDF in English – are:
- an updated CV

- a 1-minute video presentation (the link should be included in the application form)
- short presentation of the applicant for communication purposes (including the information listed HERE)
