Day #1 of TFL Extended – Script Development!

June 22, 2018

TorinoFilmLab’s intensive training scheme is back in Turin: TFL Extended – Script Development is kicking off today with 20 participants working on their feature film projects!

During 4 days, the scriptwriters and directors will test the widest range of opportunities for the creative development of their scripts by working on the project treatment to move towards the writing of a step outline. They will work in group, each guided by a script consultant with a wide international experience.
