AdaptLab 2013

About AdaptLab
AdaptLab is a long-term training course consisting of three 6-day residential workshops and two online sessions for 12 participants. It follows the whole adaptation process analysing the book's potentials, exploring the different possibilities of its story world, and following the development of the extended treatments and/or scripts with the possibility of presenting the work to a group of international producers (of which at least 15 focused on adaptation), sales agents and other industry professionals from all over the world during the TorinoFilmLab Meeting Event in November 2013. Participants will also be guided by cross-media experts in exploring the possibilities of expanding the story world through other media (mobile, internet, graphic novels).

The call for entries is dedicated to two different groups of participants that will follow the same course:

- Call for participants applying with adaptation projects (for which they need to have either a producer attached or have secured the rights)

- Call for scriptwriters wishing to develop an adaptation from previously selected novels (4 Italian novels and 4 Scandinavian novels)

Who can apply?
Experienced European scriptwriters and/or writer-directors that are interested in learning more about adaptation working on non-original stories. Applicants must come from Member states of the European Union or one of the listed European countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Croatia.

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