About TFL Extended – Film Story Editing
TFL Extended – Story Editing
is a hands-on training workshop for film professionals willing to accompany writers and directors in the development of their fiction Feature Film and TV Series projects. The aim of the programme is to provide an insight into the development process of both products, focusing on specific technical material.

Applicants must indicate in the application form if they want to work on Feature Films or TV Series projects, as each group will follow a specific schedule and will focus on different technical aspects.

20 participants will be working in 4 groups (2 for Feature Films and 2 for TV Series).
Each group of work will involve 2 projects and will be guided by a tutor, who has wide international experience as a script consultant.

Participants will acquire skills in the fields of treatment and script analysis, assessment of project development and script consulting. More concretely, they will gain insight and training in working with writers, from an idea up to a professional draft of the script, helping them find the core of their story and encouraging a script loyal to the intention of the writer and/or director.
