Script&Pitch

Script&Pitch 2014

About Script&Pitch
Every year TorinoFilmLab offers Script&Pitch, an advanced script development course for scriptwriters and directors of feature films from all over the world. The programme, supported by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, is realized with the support of Flanders Audiovisual Fund and Le Groupe Ouest, and in partnership with University College Ghent School of Arts and NISI MASA.

Open to 12 projects from all over the world, the course lasts 9 months - from March to November 2014 - and foresees 3 residential workshops and 2 on-line sessions. It follows the entire scriptwriting process, offering close collaboration and insights into the challenges of each step, from generating ideas and structuring the material through first and second drafts, up to a final pitch in front of the Decision Makers (producers, distributors, etc.) invited to the TorinoFilmLab Meeting Event in November 2014, during the next Torino Film Festival.

The selected Script&Pitch projects will have the possibility to apply to the TorinoFilmLab FrameWork programme in 2015, provided they fulfil the conditions of eligibility (having a first- or second-time director and a producer attached; the first day of shooting must be scheduled after November 2015).

The Story Editor action, open to 3 people coming from MEDIA-eligible countries, will give story editors, producers and development professionals an opportunity to work closely with the tutors and projects, gaining hands-on insights into the script development process.


Who can apply?
Script&Pitch is open to professional scriptwriters, writer-directors, as well as to writer-producers and development executives.

We will accept scriptwriters’ applications from all over the world.
We will accept story editors’ applications only from citizens of MEDIA-eligible countries.

Many of our participants already have a production company interested in their project. However, it is not necessary to have a producer attached to the project.

Applicants must confirm their availability for all the workshops and the final pitch.

The working language of all Script&Pitch workshops, meetings and events is English; thus, a good knowledge of English is essential in order to participate.
