Apply to Sources 2 for documentary script development


Sources 2 Script Development Workshops are tailored to European screenwriters and teams of writers and co-writers, directors or producers developing a film project together. For the next edition you can apply by December 1 2014 with your feature length creative documentary.

Freak Out! - Developed at Sources 2

The next edition of the Sources 2 Script Development Workshop will take place on April 9 – 17, 2015 in Gothenburg, Sweden. At the workshop experienced script advisers provide a range of tools to improve the participants' writing skills and to develop their projects to the utmost potential.

Each workshop is a three-month process involving three groups with a maximum of five projects, each guided by one adviser. The working language is generally English. The three-month process includes:

  •    ·   Seven-day workshop with group sessions and supplementary programme
  •    ·   Three-month re-writing period in close contact with other group members and coached by the advisers
  •    ·   Follow-up session of one day per project (conceived as a group meeting, exceptionally, an individual one-day meeting with the adviser is possible)

The programme is open to feature-length film projects addressing a broad international audience. Submission requirements include:

Feature films: treatment.

Creative documentaries: presentation at a basic stage of development and research, which clearly indicates a possible structure for the film.

Special work groups on specific genres/subjects may be announced.

The submission fee for the workshop is €100 per project. The participation fees are €2.000 per project/writer and €1.000 per second/third person committed to the project. The participation fee includes the seven-day session, coaching during the re-writing period, and the second session of one day per project.
