MIDPOINT Intensive CZ is a professional script development program open to Czech creative teams of filmmakers with feature fiction films in development.
The program accepts teams of writers and producers, directors can also apply.
The program is also open to script consultants, who are already part of the creative team and actively participate in the development of the project.
During the workshop, the teams will work on the creative development of their scripts. The workshop consists of group work within a small group of participants, accompanied by individual consultations with group leaders and an expert lecture.
In case of sufficient interest of script consultants, the workshop will be expanded by adding a one-day seminar intended exclusively for them.
(The organization of this one-day seminar to be confirmed.)
After the workshop, tailor-made online consultations will follow, according to the needs of each project.
The program runs in the English language.
The program schedule and the form of the organization inevitably depend on the development of the coronavirus pandemic situation.
MIDPOINT Intensive CZ 2021 is realized with the support of the Audiovisual Producers' Association and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
