Where have you heard about Scripteast?
From the polish producer and director Mr. Dariusz Jablonski during one of the film festivals

What made you interested in this program?
I do like to meet new screenwriters. Sometimes on such workshops I found projects I produced later. It’s always passionate to be involved, in one way or another, in the development of a screenplay.

What do you expect from this year edition of scripteast?
A new experience in the place and in the country I never worked before. And maybe some interesting input and feedback from the authors.

Do you have previous experience as tutor and advisor at similar workshops?
Quite some in many different parts of the world.

What is your personal defintion of a good scrtipt and what – the most- makes it succesful?
I have no definition or a formula regarding a “good” script. Even less I could say what makes it successful. There are no rules. It’s just the question of individual feeling, and we can help ourselves with our own experience, our own taste and our own vision of the cinema (and sometimes of the world). I know what I like and I am looking for it in others works.
