MIDPOINT has opened a special workshop program dedicated to short fiction films in development. Within the two residential workshops, teams of writers, directors and producers get to develop their script as well as prepare the production and promotional aspects of their projects. The feedback format is based on one-to-one tutoring as well as and group feedback.

MIDPOINT Shorts 2018 is a professional project development program open to creative teams of filmmakers (scriptwriter, director, and producer).

During two one-week long residential workshops, the teams will work on the creative development of the script as well as on the development, production and promotional aspects of their projects.

The residential workshops consist of group work within a small group of participants, being led by an experienced script consultant, accompanied by plenary sessions and one-to-one meetings with an international team of experts from different areas of audiovisual industries, who we will be coming to the parallel international program MIDPOINT Feature Launch.

Tailor-made online consultations will follow after W1 and W2, according to the need of each project.
