APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN !
From September 14th to November 8th, 2020
Make the most of this exceptional opportunity to integrate a creative writing development scheme that will allow you to get closer to the series industry by better understanding its artistic, commercial and pragmatic requirements.
Europe and its History are an inexhaustible source of inspiration, with strong fictional potential. The appropriation of the brief and the treatment you are going to do with it must be in line with the European imaginary, which is filled with strong subjects,real or fictitious heroes and emblematic places, sometimes not much exploited in films and series.
Thanks to your original creations, this writing residency has the ambition to make this heritage shine, and to promote the creation of universal stories with an international scope.
You can choose one of the two following themes while respecting a short format of 15 minutes per episode :
Story of Love & near future
Teenagers, dreams & empowerment.
Justify a content creation experience (short or feature film, theater, novel, comic strip, one man show, etc.)
English must be fluent enough to be able to participate in the development workshops.
French can however be used for writing your project.
Co-written projects are accepted but only one of the two authors can join the intensive 3-week residency in Cannes.
