The eQuinoxe Europe Intl. Screenwriter Workshops –
powered by experience, fueled by inspiration.
Nine promising screenplays are selected by an international jury to participate in a one-week script workshop. Their producers attend the last 2.5 days of the workshop. The writers meet on the basis of one-to-one discussions with nine advisors – internationally known and experienced screenwriters, directors and script editors – who share their knowledge and experience.
The aims are to create artistic and economic effects for the European industry, achieve the best possible result from strong stories with an inherent cultural and linguistic identity, thereby retaining and encouraging cultural diversity, create an international/intercultural dialogue allowing talented filmmakers to learn from the best in the business, access and become part of eQuinoxe Europe's international network, establish stronger relationships between Europe's filmmakers and other global territories.
The success of eQuinoxe Europe is due to the generosity and professional expertise of numerous internationally recognised screenwriters, directors and producers, who continually offer their services to eQuinoxe Europe for the Intl. Screenwriters' Workshops as advisors:
