POWR BALTIC STORIES EXCHANGE

Call for Participants 2018

POWR Baltic Stories Exchange – an international pitch forum for scriptwriters

November 26-30, 2018, Tallinn, Estonia

Submissions are now closed. Selection will be announced in mid-October.

POWR is looking to select 6 feature film projects in the early stages of development that are actively seeking producers. Selected screenwriters will be invited to get pitch-training and to present their projects at the POWR Baltic Stories Exchange, which takes place during the Baltic Event Co-production Market.

POWR Workshop is aimed at giving mainly Nordic and Baltic scriptwriters access to an informal and international forum where they can present their projects and writing talent during the largest regional film market in North-Eastern Europe. We also invite talents from Baltic Event’s focus region of 2018 – ITALY to apply to POWR!

This year, POWR is partnering up with IN FOCUS, a Finnish initiative aimed at female filmmakers that provides an incubator to support four film- or TV projects to cross the bridge from script to production stage. The initiative is funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation. 

IN FOCUS will pitch their projects in collaboration with POWR.

During our 4-day workshop the 6 screenwriters will practice skills to pitch their projects through group sessions, talks and rehearsals. It is an open, generous, and sharing atmosphere, headed by our main tutor, Valeria Richter (Denmark/TFL), pitch coach Helene Granqvist (Sweden/Nordic Factory) and selected industry guests. The final pitch will be approx. 5 minutes per project followed by a ‘speed-dating’ session where the participants will meet selected producers and other film industry representatives, who will share their feedback and advice. POWR is an intensive and fun experience, mixing project work with networking events.

POWR workshop is organized by Baltic Event in collaboration with the region’s Creative Europe MEDIA Desks and TorinoFilmLab (TFL).

Project criteria:

  • full-length feature film with potential for theatrical distribution (incl. genre projects)
  • potential for the international market/co-production
  • projects from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Italy are accepted
  • No fee – only travel costs

Required documentation:

  • filled in application form
  • short synopsis (3 pages)
  • short CV (2 pages)
  • short motivation for participation incl. previous pitch-experience (1 page)
