During the week, participants take part in an intensive Project Development Day and have the opportunity for one-on-one meetings with a script mentor. They get to work on their project description for the public presentation of Script Station, and continue development of their project treatment. After the public presentation, the participants will have the chance to meet with directors and producers attending Berlinale Talents. Apart from their time spent at Script Station the selected filmmakers will participate in the Summit programme of Berlinale Talents.
Who can apply?
Script Station is looking for screenwriters who have either written a script for a feature length film or a high quality tv series or screenwriters who have written a script for a short film, and are now working on a script for a feature length film for the first time. The previous film should have been screened at an international film festival or been broadcast on television. Applicants should show a good understanding of the film industry. The main aim of Script Station is not to help find a director or producer, nor funding for the project, to advise on the projects‘ budget, or to arrange or facilitate co-production meetings. Script Station is also open to alumni of Berlinale Talents who have not yet taken part in this project lab.
How to apply?
First step is to apply to Berlinale Talents as a screenwriter or director. After submitting the general application the possibility is given to apply for Script Station. Former participants of Berlinale Talents are invited to apply directly.
