ESP scriptwriting workshop in residency

January 11, 2016 @ 8:00 am - January 17, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

European Short Pitch is an initiative aimed at promoting the European coproduction of short films. It combines a scriptwriting workshop in residency and a coproduction forum bringing together scriptwriters, directors and industry professionals from all over Europe.

The scriptwriting workshop in residency will take place from the 11th till the 17th of January 2016 in Vilnius, Lithuania, in partnership with the Lithuanian Film Centre. Participants will be in groups of four projects, with a tutor heading the process. For five days, they will work intensively on their projects, also giving feedback on other participants’ projects, alternating collective & group sessions, one to- one sessions with the tutor, and a lecture on an initiation to pitching. One session with a guest producer will introduce participants to European short film coproduction. The aim of this first session is to enhance the quality of the script and to prepare participants to promote their projects in an international context.

ESP scriptwriting workshop in residency will be followed by an online session (from 18th of January till 22nd of February 2016) and the co-production forum from the 2nd till the 6th of March 2016 in Luxembourg as part of Luxembourg City Film Festival in partnership with LARS and Espera Productions.

European Short Pitch is organised by NISI MASA – European Network of Young Cinema.

Present in 28 countries, NISI MASA has been organising dozens of international film projects since 2001.

The 2016 edition of European Short Pitch will be managed by Wim Vanacker, Head of the Script Department, Jérôme Nunes, Manager of the Coproduction forum and Aleksandra Zakharchenko, Project Coordinator.
