The Franco-British screenwriting workshop will soon open its doors to screenwriters from four countries of the « Arab Spring » : Egypt, Libya, Syria and Tunisia.
The workshop’s originality rests on the comparison between different cinematographic practices (Great-Britain and France) who have created a strong dynamic and ensured their success. The workshop makes a new breakthrough by bringing together the energy of new talents – screenwriters and directors – from the « countries of the Arab Spring » who will bring a new dynamic and powerful stories, while, in return, being able to benefit from expertise and an opening-up towards Europe.
For its 2012 edition the workshop will therefore welcome six screenwriters from the « countries of the Arab Spring », who will join the four screenwriters who are graduates of the FEMIS, and the four screenwriters who are graduates of the NFTS.
The workshop will take place over four sessions.
The candidates have to be French or English-speaking. The screenwriters from the Arab countries will, if they wish, be able to work in their own language in parallel.
