Euromed Audiovisual calls for script editors and scriptwriters

The European Union's Euromed Audiovisual programme, in partnership with the French Institute of Tunis, is launching two new training initiatives:

  1. “SOCRATES: Story Editing Tools”. Professionals who work with scripts on a regular basis may be familiar with the challenges of having to find satisfying ways to engage with the writing, of how to approach scripts without judging the material and of how to gain sufficient confidence to make informed decisions.
    This training is designed to help all those people within the film industry who want or need to work with scripts and improve their script editing techniques, particularly with regards to a screenplay's development potential.
  2. “SOCRATES: Guidance to Writing your Screenplay”. This training is open to scriptwriters, authors or directors with a script in development (full script or treatment). The SOCRATES training offers the possibility to develop the script with professional script editors. The objective is to develop the screenplay so that it is ready for production.

Both trainings will run in parallel. The Euromed Audiovisual programme will select six story editors and 12 scriptwriters. Each story editor will follow and correct two scripts under the supervision of two experienced tutors: Isabelle Fauvel and Faouzi Bensaidi.

The training will be held between September and December 2014 and will be structured in two phases. A first workshop is scheduled to take place from September 8 to 10, 2014, while a personalised follow-up period is scheduled from September to December 2014.

The training initiative is open to established professionals from Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia who are resident in those countries.
