Feature film

Feature Film is a follow-up screenwriting workshop for graduates of the Screenwriting for Beginners or Practical Screenwriting only. Participation in this workshop will allow participants to write their own feature film script – from idea to script – under the supervision of experienced mentors.

How does the workshop look?

During seven 5-hour meetings, participants will broaden their scope of theoretical knowledge, perform exercises to stimulate creativity and work on their own projects under the supervision of a professional screenwriter. Each participant will complete the program with their own script for a feature film.

The scripts created during the course (at least the second version) meet the formal requirements of the market. All projects are the sole property of the authors and can be submitted to script contests and presented to producers.

Due to our involvement in projects carried out both in Poland and abroad (for which we are also looking for screenwriters), an additional selection will be made from those who sign up for the workshop.

If you are interested in signing up for the workshop, please complete the application form by 26 February 2023. Applicants will be informed about the recruitment procedure, which will end by 5 March 2023 at the latest.
