ESP 2012 - Logo

As part of GENERATOR, an intensive sample of workshops set up by NISI MASA on a yearly basis, as well as seminars, forums and otherround table discussions about young filmmaking in Europe, NISI MASA organises a scriptwriting marathon!

From 25 to 27 January 2013 in Strasbourg, France, NISI MASA is looking for 16 young European scriptwriters between 18 and 35, with a  short film project  that they wish to develop through a dynamic workshop.
No topic imposed, but a story that has been on yourmind for a while, an idea which you cannot develop on your own, a subject matter that you deeply care about. You will have 3  days to boost your project and leave with a script.

The workshop will be monitored by Wim Vanacker and  Jérôme Nunes, organisers of European Short Pitch, an event that combines a scriptwriting residency  and a coproduction forum, andNadja Dumouchel, a story editor working  for ARTE Germany, Torino Film Lab and European Short Pitch.

On top of the writing periods, script consulting and feedback sessions, you will make the most of the surrounding synergy and the various events to meet other young film enthusiasts with exciting projects.

Beginning of workshop: 25.01.2013 @ 3pm
End of workshop: 27.01.2013 @ 3pm
