Call for Participants 2015
Baltic Stories Exchange – a pitch forum for scriptwriters
November 15th – 18th 2015, Tallinn, Estonia
Deadline for application – August 23rd 2015
POWR is looking to select 8 feature film projects in the early stages of development that are actively seeking producers. Upon selection they will be developed and presented at the POWR Baltic Stories Exchange, which takes place during the Baltic Event Co-Production Market.
POWR Workshop is aimed at giving Nordic and Baltic scriptwriters an informal and international forum to present their projects and their writing talent during the largest regional film market in North-Eastern Europe.
We develop the 8 projects through group sessions and pitch preparation at our 2-day workshop in an open, generous, and sharing atmosphere, headed by the 2 tutors, Valeria Richter (DK) and Antonio Piazza (IT). The pitch will be approx. 5 minutes per project followed by a round table session where the projects will meet selected producers and other film industry representatives, who will give their feedback and advice. POWR is an intensive and fun experience, mixing project work and networking events.
The workshop is organized in collaboration with Baltic Event, TorinoFilmLab, and the Baltic and Scandinavian Creative Europe MEDIA Desks.
