During the fourteenth edition and over the eight months of the course screenwriters will be able to develop their fiction feature film projects under the guidance of world-renowned industry professionals.
The first session will be a week’s workshop that will take place in October, in Poland, where individual meetings will be held with well-known screenwriters, directors and producers. After that, there will be individual online consultations. Subsequent sessions, which will be combined with the promotion of the projects as well as of their writers, will take place at international festivals in Berlin (February 2020) and Cannes (May 2020). The Cannes International Film Festival will also feature the Krzysztof Kieślowski ScripTeast award.
