ScriptLab 2022 is open until 1st October 2021!

September 17, 2021

We believe that the most original stories are realised through the generous sharing of personal processes of creation among a group of film professionals, bringing a diversity of experience, culture, and personality to the table. That’s why we do ScriptLab, our long-standing programme specifically dedicated to screenwriting!

The annual programme comprises 2 week-long residential modules (June and November) and 3 online modules (March, September and October), and it is open to 20 writer/directors (or teams of screenwriter and director) from all over the world, working on a fiction feature film in early development stage.

ScriptLab is focused on every kind of fiction feature film, but for the edition 2022 we especially welcome applications for feature film comedy projects, in a wide definition of that genre.

We are also looking for 5 story editor trainees, professionals interested in gaining an insight into the script development process. The story editor trainees will acquire skills in the fields of treatment and script analysis, assessment of project development and script consulting.

All of this will be made possible thanks to the support of our network of international partners that help us reaching talents from all over the world and… a brand-new round of workshops requires new features, don’t you think?

TFL is thrilled to announce the new partnership with FOCAL, a Swiss confederation that organises further training and practice-based education for film and audiovisual professionals in Switzerland and Europe.

We are also happy to have onboard for the second time German Films, the German information and advisory center for the promotion of German films worldwide.

These partners will help us to give shape to the upcoming class of ScriptLab and the best is yet to come!

The deadline to apply to ScriptLab 2022 is 1st October 2021.
