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?
The Script Station is for screenwriters who have written scripts for at least two short films or a drama series which have either screened internationally, won awards, or been broadcast on television or online. Applicants should have a good understanding of the film industry and outstanding writing skills. The main focus here is on developing your screenplay – not to help find a director, producer, funding, budget advice or co-production meetings. It’s about the story, pure and simple. The Script Station is also open to Berlinale Talents alumni who have not yet taken part in this Project Lab.

How to apply?
The first step is to apply to Berlinale Talents as a screenwriter or director. After submitting the general application, you will be given the option to apply for the Script Station. Former participants of Berlinale Talents are invited to apply directly. If you need further information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at talents@berlinale.de or +49 30 25920 515.

Script Station is supported by the German Federal Filmboard (FFA) and Sources 2.
