20 projects will be selected to work in 5 groups, each guided by a tutor with a wide international experience as a script consultant.
Throughout the workshop, the participants will test the widest range of opportunities for the creative development of their projects by working on the treatment.

TFL Extended – Script Development is aimed at encouraging the creative processes necessaries to achieve the best possible result from strong stories, which can meet audience and market’s requirements.
