Following the great success of the Short Film Script Development Workshop that was held during the first KineNova International Film Festival in 2016 to promote and encourage the next generation of screenwriters, the organizers are pleased to announce that submissions are now open for a second workshop.
Keeping in with the spirit and aims of the film festival, the organizers welcome submissions from those who are relatively inexperienced in script writing and who would like to benefit from participating in a three-day script development workshop that will cover the fundamentals of script writing and story development. Sessions will consist of presentations, group work, and one-on-one tutorials.
At the end of the workshop the FX3X Film Production Company will award a prize for the best script. Worth 3000 Euros, the prize will consist of the use of film equipment necessary to realize the script into a short film.
