Finale Plzen Film Festival sets the frame for the second out of three residential MIDPOINT TV Launch workshops and we are happy to share the program with you.
Six TV series projects and sixteen participants have been selected to participate in this Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union supported program to develop their projects over the course of 9 months. The participants will receive an intensive one-to-one tutoring and they will participate in group feedback sessions.
MIDPOINT TV Launch is a workshop program that nurtures and trains emerging talents from the regions of Central and Eastern Europe. The program provides training and tutors the participants in creating rich-in-content, compelling stories and innovative series concepts.
During the second workshop the teams will be guided by Core Tutors Maggie Murphy (USA) and Gabor Krigler (HU), as well as by Director Tutor Rumle Hammerich (DK), Producer Tutor Jacqueline de Goeij (BE) and Guest Tutor Steve Matthews (UK).
